Jelu Syrah Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a dense purple-black in color, with heady aromas of red cherries and black pepper. The palate is rich and inviting with ripe forest fruits and sweet smoky mineral flavors, typical of the terrior.

Intense aromas of black olive, truffles, and bakers chocolate are followed by even richer flavors of the same, with some plum notes added in for good measure. The mouthfeel is so rich and round you might think the olive flavors come from olive oil in the wine. The length is hard to surpass even at three times the price.

The Jelu winery, located in the San Juan region of Argentina, is located at an elevation of 900 feet. "Jelu" means "sun" in the native language, and these grapes do in fact achieve maximum ripeness from all the hot Argentine sun they get. Blackberry fruit, pepper, and great underlying minerality make this a tasty and crowd-pleasing wine.

Jelu Syrah Zonda Valley San Juan 2008 750ML

The 2008 Syrah Reserve Zonda Valley also spent 6 months in French and American oak. Purple in color, it proffers an alluring bouquet of Asian spices, incense, smoked meat, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry. In the glass it displays a hint of chocolate, pepper, black and blue fruits, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give this outstanding value another 1–2 years of cellaring and drink it from 2013 to 2020.
