The Kingston Family first came to Chile in the early 1900's. Carl John Kingston, the patriarch and pioneer, came to Chile looking for copper (good idea) and gold (crazy idea). "Gramps" Kingston was an American originally from Central Mine, Michigan, which exists only as a ghost town today in Michigan's upper peninsula.

Tobiano in 2005 is preferable to Kingstonrsquo;s 2004 Bayo Oscuro Syrah. This wine has more lift, fruit and balance. The nose is lightly fruity and rubbery, while the palate issues snappy boysenberry and controlled herb notes. Not your average New World Syrah; itrsquo;ll make you think.
Saturated purple. Sexy, explosively perfumed bouquet of smoky dark berries, tobacco, cracked pepper and graphite. Energetic, sharply focused cassis and blackberry on the palate, with captivating baking spice and floral pastille character building through the finish. No way Irsquo;d have guessed this to be from the New World.
