Red Diamond Syrah & Crepes

Red Diamond Shiraz 2002 – Washington
This was a nice surprise. Full of plum and black cherry notes. Also some nice edge – as if it had a tinge of Viogner in it (which some winemakers blend in sparingly) – that gave it almost an apple-skin tang. A House wine. $8 on sale (usually about $12).

Breton Crepes. Whole wheat crepes, with sautéed vegetables and fried egg on top. Spinach side salad.
