Jelu's 2009 Syrah Zonda Valley spent 6 months in French and American oak. Notions of spice box, mint, game, and blueberry inform the nose of a supple, savory, sweetly-fruited, friendly wine that offers outstanding value. Drink this nicely proportioned effort over the next 3-4 years.

The dry, rocky, and sandy soil of the Zonda Valley accompanied by the “Zonda Winds,” very similar to Hermitage in the Northern Rhone Valley of France, allows these grapes to fully ripen and explode with dark fruit flavors. The deep and broad fruits are balanced and the smooth tannins make this Syrah very enjoyable and leave you wishing the bottle was larger. The addition of 6–8% Viognier is another stylistic approach reminiscent of Hermitage and increases the lush and vivacious aromatics. Although great on its own, it pairs well with any dry-rubbed meat (typical of Argentina), dense cheeses and thoughtful introspection.

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. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

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.
