This has lifted, very typical Chilean syrah character with black pepper, boldos blackcurrant, native green...

This is another wonderful Chilean Syrah, warm and inviting, with a soft, luscious embrace supported by immense flavour. It opens with gorgeous fruit, mostly raspberry, strawberry, and plum, but then the common Syrah elements come in, some mild meatiness along with black pepper, as well as earth, herbs, milk chocolate, licorice, and graphite towards the end. The mix of sweet and savoury is handled extremely well, with New World boldness nicely balancing Old World restraint, showing how well this grape can do in cool-climate Casablanca Valley. Simply delicious.

Blackberry, peppery, plus a few other elements that come together in an excellent syrah. Would buy more and likely cellar to 2016 as it has room to grow yet. 90+
