After trying some watery New York State reds yesterday, now we're talking. Full bodied earthy syrah bursting with pepper, earth, and dark fruit. Nice dark color and grapey aroma, but drinks very earthy.

One of my favorite vineyards in Chile. I have now had the '08 and the '06 and have purchased several bottles of both vintages. I prefer the '06 but it is mostly probably because it has aged slightly longer which is amazingly noticeable in this wine. This vintage still seem young and closed off. Still with the hints of black pepper that crescendos into the finish but not as much pizazz as the older vintage. I would hold on to this baby a few years. It won't disappoint!

Great wine vintage by vintage. A go to for me. Great example of what a Chilean Syrah can be. Moderately price and a great value. Subtle spice to a well balanced fruit forward wine.

Dark berry fruit leads into spice with notes of sage. Very long, satisfying finish. Served with Penne Ala Vodka and herb chicken. For $19 this was a very good buy.

This was not very complex but very easy to drink. loads of varying black fruits and a little spice/cinnamon.

Yes, this is definitely a Syrah. Who would think that this was Chilean? Deep red fruits such as blackberries waft up from the glass, along with some sweet spice that is just screaming for a steak marinated in Worcestershire sauce and sweet chilis. The finish has loads of spice and California plums, making this wine a must-have.

The 2010 Montes Alpha Syrah comes from the Apalta sub-region in Colchagua and is blended with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier. It has a reticent nose that unfurls to reveal copious blueberry and cassis fruit laced with vanilla. The palate is full-bodied with a layer of creamy oak smeared over the spicy black fruit on the entry, though it shows good weight towards the powerful finish. Give this Syrah twelve months to calm down in bottle. Drink 2013–2020.

Rubinroter Wein. Beeriges Bouquet mit schöner Würze, Zimt und intensivem Duft. Im Gaumen konzentriert und körperreich mit weichen und reifen Tanninen. Langer und eleganter Abgang.

Ripe, polished and forward, with toasty vanilla and sweet spice leading the way for creamy-textured plum and blackberry fruit. Drink now.

The 2008 Alpha Syrah is purple/black in color with an alluring nose of smoke, game, mineral, underbrush, and blueberry. Medium- to full-bodied, succulent and chewy on the palate, this lengthy effort is likely to evolve for 1ndash;2 years but can be approached now.
