A consistently high-scoring wine, this version of Alpha Syrah from Montes starts with graham cracker, vanilla, sawdust and coffee aromas on top of sexy, herbal fruit notes. The balanced palate delivers plum and berry fruit but even more vanilla and mocha. Maybe too oaky? Regardless, it's very good Syrah for Chile.
