French Vin de Pays

2001 Maison Nicholas 1-1-1 Merlot-Syrah ($12) -- French Vin de Pays by D. de Virgine (and/or Michel Peresse). I am a sucker for a cute French wine label and am always on the lookout for a very good wine value at the lower-end of the French wines, but am usually disappointed in the results. This wine was nicely stacked at Biggs in wooden crates.

This one has some fruit flavors with not much aroma or finish. It is a blend of Merlot/Syrah (70/30) as the front label proclaims. Kudos for that.

The search continues!
