Emiliana Red Blend Colchagua Valley Coyam 2006
This is one of my favourite wines. It is still young and as it matures it will definitely become a superstar. This wine is part of my cellar and I will be saving a couple cases to drink when it has reached maturity, in the meantime I will continue to appreciate its youthful presence. The complexity of this wine will only continue to reveal itself as it ages.
Drank November 2008 / an absolute powerhouse / a Chilean blend of six grapes - syrah, merlot, carmenere, cabernet sauvignon, mourvedre, & malbec / this is not a subtle wine - not a match for light fare by any means, but a good stand-alone wine / would like to see where it goes, mellow and soften with time? / $24 range
Very nice. Peppery on nose and first sip then ends with fruit. Enjoyed with rare rib eye steak!
Luscious black fruit on the nose, satisfying licorice / meaty palate. Fantastic value at £12.50 - beats many Southern French equivalents costing twice as much
Four and a half glasses

Food Pairings for Emiliana Red Blend Colchagua Valley Coyam
Coyam is intensely violet-red in color. The nose expresses a harmony of ripe dark fruit, berries, blackcurrant, and forest fruits that delicately intermingle with the oak to deliver soft mineral notes, toffee, and chocolate. The palate offers a pleasing balance of volume and balance, very good body, smooth, well-rounded tannins, and a long finish, showing its character and personality. Recommended for long aging.
