15 Syrah 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from fruit from the Aconcagua Valley next to the big guns (Errazuriz / Chadwick & Von Siebenthal) from Panquehue. It was harvested in mid April, was macerated for 7 days on its skins in frio, fermented in open oak barrels on their heads with punch down or pistonage. It was post macerated another 10 days and has evolved into an interesting smokey and plush wine with lots of layers to it. We have sold two other barrels of this Syrah and held this one back deeming it the best one to hold on to, and it has been worth it. It is a deep slightly bricky cherry in colour, with fruit now evolved with medium structure and an elegance and robustness now married that seem to mark most all of our wines. With a bigger middle and a slightly longer finish this would have been one of our top-flight wines, but alas helps us to keep some great wine at a medium price. A great counterpoint to the big Cab now available. more info : http://www.garagewineco.cl/15

This is a mysterious wine that shows itself gradually over time. On the nose it has a subtle floral note to begin haps plummy cherries and in the mouth there is big cherry fruit and blueberries (not the jammy blueberries of Zin but tighter more acidic blueberries that are really quite funky and rewarding.) It has a smokey quality with chocolaty notes and a finish that is meaty / bacony notes from warm climate Chilean Syrah. Drink with a stew with merken if you can find it.
