Best 20 dollar red I have tasted this year. Okay it's 23.95, but still best at this price. And since I don't usually spend more than this for a bottle anyways, that makes this the best wine I have tasted this year.

Big full bodied wine offering luscious vanilla oak, rich blackberry/blueberry fruit and herbal notes. I loved it!

There isn't really a "wow" factor here, and it opens to a slight rubber hit, but this luscious Chilean Syrah grows and grows on you until you realize it's just a gorgeous "comfort" wine with loads of appeal; deep purple, it wafts intoxicating notes of rich, dark fruit, especially blackcurrant, along with spice and herb elements, and in the mouth there's tangy red fruit, licorice, and mocha, and each encounter seems to bring a different star to the fore, requesting contemplation without being brooding; still quite young, but the tannins are nicely integrated, and the finish is exceptional.
