Editorial Reviews for Concha Y Toro Maycas del Limari Reserva Syrah
This is quite marked by soil tones with a bit of diesel sulfur covering some of the floral, herbal and grilled beef tones. This is slightly peppery but showing more mace and cocoa with a bit of thin mints. Broad and a bit loose in the mouth, this has decent acidity but lacks some structure. The fruit is fresh and intense with a nice, slightly extract wild berry/mulberry quality and some wood spice and tannin emerging on the back end. Finishes rather short and tight, may just be too young but this is at least in an awkward phase today. 87pts
