Divit’s Pick #1: 2016 Gouye Gabouillon Syrah $18.99

When I tried this wine with Barry I was in love at first sip. Here is a northern Rhône Syrah that is priced like Côtes du Rhône, but it still provides the smoky berry spice you would expect from the north. From the village of St. Joseph, it delivers pure fruit and a forward drink-ability for half the price of its neighbors. This is one of my picks for a fall red that I will drink by the case.
