The 2008 Ninquén Antu Syrah is full bodied with nice aromas of fruity to integrated bilberry, prune, pine and vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium. It is good to drink now, but should age well for the next 5 to 10 years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted Jan/11.
