Maison les Alexandrins, Northern Rhone '17 ** $ VALUE
A dollop of white viognier lightens this easy drinking spicy syrah.
Cline Family Cellars Syrah, Sonoma Coast '18 *1/2 $ GOOD VALUE
Young, but already showing good fruit, pesky tannins, good acidity.
All of these wines can be purchased at Kenilworth Wine and Spirits.
