Monte Xanic Syrah 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Very good deep red color, nice aromas and complex flavor with excellent body. It's a perfectly balanced wine with strong tannins but well flush that don't feel aggressive in the mouth.

The Valle de Guadalupe is located 30 kilometers inland from Ensenada, on Mexico's Pacific Coast, 100 km south of the border with the United States. Consequently, its vineyards are the northernmost of Mexico's and the distance from the ocean is between 15 and 20 kilometers. The vines are at altitudes between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides humid currents that result in a microclimate in the valley. Today the Valle de Guadalupe is Mexico's most prestigious wine region, and home to 90% of the top wines of Mexico. Read less

Had the pleasure of having the close relative of the winemaker at one of my tables last Saturday night. Graciously, I was allowed to taste this little beauty of a Mexican wine. Good deep ruby color. Strong robust Syrah with a big body and firm tannins. Well structured with a fleshy broad mouthfeel. Spicy plum and blackberry flavors dominate with a decent finish. I was surprised to experience this quality from my first mexican wine. Makes me interested in others.
