2007 Ch. Mourgues du Gres, ‘Les Galets Rouges’ Costières de Nîmes AOC, France
The coolness in the air announcing the arrival of the fall calls for a comforting red wine. There is no better place than the South of France to find a seductive and well priced bottle. A blend of Syrah and Grenache, ‘Les Galets Rouges’ has exotic lifted aromas of violet and game and bursts with flavours of raspberries and plum. A great wine to drink with the last lingering BBQs or your first meat stew of the season.
$19.95 (CSPC #896522) Available at BC Liquor Stores
The Canadian Immigration Services couldn't come to grips with the girth of my middle name, and so, chopped the remaining three letters off of my first name. My last name only has two letters, so it does make me wonder if there are thousands of permanent Canadian residents with fragmented first names. President Obama, if he wanted to move to Canada would be reduced to just Barr, which in all fairness would be a pretty sweet first name. Anyway, that's where Timo comes from. Bet you're glad you read this. You will never get those 48 seconds back, ever.
