One of my favorite vineyards in Chile. Very sophisticated syrah. Medium bodied and extremely balanced with notes of pepper and soft spice. Long, lasting finish. Although not to easy to find I would always pick up a bottle of this if I see it.

Farbe: intensives Rubinrot. Aromen von schwarzen Kirschen und frisch geschälter Vanille. Im Gaumen konzentriert und körperreich, mit Noten von Cassis und Pflaumen. Weiche und reife Tannine. Langer und eleganter Abgang.

92 Points - The Wine News"Defined freshness in a bouquet that imparts black cherry, plum, licorice and espresso bean. Accessible black cherry flavors with a compote-like sweetness. Dry, spicy finish imbued with fine-grain tannins and a suggestion of black pepper."91 Points - Wine Spectator"Richly layered, with ambitiously styled fig, mocha, espresso and bittersweet cocoa, backed by a lush beam of boysenberry fruit. Fleshy and toasty through the finish, with the dark fruit lingering well in the background. Drink now through 2010. 35,000 cases made."91 Points - The Wine Advocate"The 2006 Alpha Syrah Apalta Vineyard is purple colored with an enticing nose of game, espresso, earth, and blueberry. This leads to an elegantly-styled Syrah with spicy blue and black fruit flavors, good depth, and a fruit-filled finish. Enjoy it over the next 4-6 years. "90 Points - International Wine Cellar"Deep red. Expressive, pungent aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cherry, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers. Already quite complex, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors, gentle tannins and slow-building candied floral character. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with gentle grip and very good juicy persistence."Winemaker's notes:From our "La Finca" Estate, in the Apalta Valley, The scarcest of our ALPHA line, it shows how promising the Apalta Valley slopes are. Yield is very low, only 6 tons per hectare. It has been aged in French oak for one year and had only one soft filtering. Aurelio has added 7% of Cabernet Sauvignon and a 3% of Viognier to the final blend. Of intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco and leathery notes. Strong and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant and satisfying after taste. A superb Syrah.Syrah 90% + Cabernet Sauvignon 7% + Viognier 3%
