Think of the Delicato as a possible barbeque or picnic wine and the Geyser Peak as a crowd pleaser or party wine. And yes, a $10 difference in price did make a difference in quality (but I might be tempted to spend even more for a Red Mountain Syrah from Washington State if the grocery store carried them).

I think another Syrah to look out for is the Red Bicyclette (Gallo), a Vins de Pays d`Oc. $18.00Cdn. I know there will be hoots of derision but it`s not bad!!
