Domaine Faillenc Sainte Marie Corbieres 2007 – $14.99

Take me to funky town.  First day, all animal vinegar B.O.  In the mouth, there are hints of earthy red tart fruit.  Second day, animal funk is fading, fruit surging ahead in the mid palate.  This suggests the wine needs time, or at least some air, like an hour, plus decanting, and a lot of swirling.  Watch out for carpel tunnel syndrome.  When the funk does pass, this thing goes Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut.  Chocolate, tart currants, and nuts.  Not for everyone, but Fruit & Nut lovers be advised!  Grenache/Syrah/Mouvedre.  A Neal Rosenthal selection and the price is right, say no more.  Recommended by Christy Frank of Frankly Wines.  RECOMMENDED/HIGHLY RECOMMEND
