Inky dark purple-black in color with aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, bacon, eucalyptus and green olive. Ripe black raspberry fruit flavors with kirsch and white pepper finishing with moderate tannins, good acidity and a nice mineral streak. Delicious and completely unexpected at less than $10 a bottle.

Winemaker's Notes:

The striking landscape of the Elqui Valley in northern Chile is the location for this lush, cool-weather Syrah. Handpicked from the stony, wind-swept slopes of this semi-arid desert vineyard, grapes give rich color and intense spice, with notes of tar and touches of bacon fat, similar to Côte Rôtie. Tannins are round and supple, and the mouth delivers an endless flood of rich, black fruits. Chile's most renowned winemaker, Alvaro Espinoza, guides this wine from field to bottle--an outstanding value for its high quality, and a sheer pleasure to drink.
