    I used to read this group years ago, but haven't popped in for a long
    time. So forgive me, please, for diving straight in with a question
    to which I need an almost instantaneous answer!

    If any of you could recommend some thing I can buy on the UK high
    street in the 7-10 range to drink straight away with lamb shanks,
    that would be really kind.

    To an extent that depends on how they are cooked......

    ....... but a good standby for long cooked lamb is a nice Rioja

    A Crozes Hermitage from Chapoutier or Caves de Tain would probably
    fit the bill at the right price.

    Otherwise something else Syrah-based or Shiraz if not too fruity.

    My vote would be for an Italian Primitivo

    My first thought with lamb is Bordeaux. To meet the need for immediate
    consumption and the price point in question, I'd look to the Cru
    Bourgeois or satellite appellations from a "lesser" year like '02 or
    '04. I don't know enough about what's available in London to provide
    specifics, but perhaps a few of our UK correspondents could help out.

    As noted, depends on prep. Like Mark, I like Bordeaux with lamb, but
    shanks are usually braised, so not a young Bdx, and mature is probably
    out of your range. I like the idea of Rioja. If prep is more
    Italianate, might look for a good Chianti. If more rosemary/herbish,
    the Crozes is a good idea. Actually braised lamb is a very red-
    friendly food, so most good wines that aren't too tannic, oaky, or
    soft would probably be ok.

    Hi,

    Herencia Remondo La Montesa 2005 Crianza shows up in winesearcher as
    available in several wine shops, at least one of them in London: Berry,
    Bros & Rudd.

    Price is 10,17 StP.

    Very nice wine, perfect to drink with lamb.

    s.

    I opened a bottle of this last week and the metallic nose was very strong.
    I think a shiraz/syrah would be preferable.

    I have never come across a metallic nose in a primitivo or zinfandel.
    In the Calif. zins, what I find most that I object to is big fruity
    overripe zins with almost no acid. Maybe good for making wine coolers
    by the pool in summer...

    I have another bottle that I intend opening in the next week or so - perhaps
    it won't be so pronounced. I'll report back.
