Montes 2000 Alpha-Viñedo Apalta Syrah (Colchagua Valley)

Though there are bright blackberry, almost cassis, notes on the nose and in the mouth, they're enveloped in an unusual toast-meets-green herb combination that one taster called burning green tobacco and another described as marinated stuffed grape leaves. Finishes with dry leather, cedar and cocoa flavors. Still in all, this medium-weight, soft wine contains some big, sweet fruit that will appeal to many.
