Excellent Chilean Syrah for this price is pretty much unheard of. The nose on this wine offers licorice, blackberry, a hint of raisin and floral accents. It's active, tannic and healthy in the mouth, with pure berry and spiced fruitcake flavors. Foresty, dark and figgy on the finish. A bargain in New World Syrah.
