WTN: 100% Numa Oak (but I like it)

2005 Mas de Guiot Costières-de-Nîmes Cuvée Numa
Very good value from Southern France with tons of dark Syrah fruit but also a lot of oak, so don't go near this if you are a total oakphobe. Despite my usual preferences for lower oak I seem to have a blind spot for it in old world Syrah, so this is very tasty wine for me. I think the oak will also integrate further, as there is a ton of fruit and good structure. At $17.99 this is a very good value for 100% Syrah.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
