Ripe, rich and rubbery, and seemingly just hitting its stride. The nose offers earth, tar and lots of magnetic black fruit. Flavors of plum, blackberry and sugar beet are sweet yet not candied, while the finish deals espresso, mocha and wood dust. A very good Chilean Syrah, but one that should be judged among its Chilean brethren.
