Viña Falernia Pedro Ximénez 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Purpur. Würzige Cabernet-Nase, die mich an Eukalyptus, dunkle Schokolade und feine Vanille erinnert. Im Geschmack eine weiche Fülle, etwas Minze, blaubeerige Frucht und mit feinem Tannin durchwoben.

Viña Falernia:
The company was founded in 1998 after Aldo Olivier Gramola realised the potential for producing superb wines in this seem-arid valley. Aldo settled with his family in the Elqui Valley in 1951 and has been producing grapes and wine there since 1975.

The company was founded in 1998 after Aldo Olivier Gramola realised the potential for producing superb wines in this seem-arid valley. Aldo settled with his family in the Elqui Valley in 1951 and has been producing grapes and wine there since 1975. The Falernia project was born after he met Giorgio Flessati, an enologist working in the Trentino region of northern Italy. This is an innovative venture given that Viña Falernia is Chile’s most northerly wine estate, a considerable distance from the country’s main wine-growing areas. The driving force has been a passion for the wine and the challenge of transforming a tract of desert into a green vineyard with enormous potential for producing premium wines, availing ourselves of the latest technology, the support of agronomist from Chile universities and of world renowned enologists.

My Rating 89. This wine has a more elegant approach to syrah. nose has elegant restrained berry caracter. Taste is dry with fine grained tannins, oak is very subdued, fruit is concentrated but not overpowering. Try it!!

This Syrah is dense, spicy and smokey, with plum, pepper and herbal notes to boot. Nice medium long finish. Great value at around $10.

Very light after decanting. Subtle notes of pepper spice up the soft aromas and palate.

From Chile's northernmost wine estate. Grapes sourced in the Elqui Valley. Malolactic fermentation. Full bodied. Pepper, smoke, game, plum. Smooth tannins. I purchased 3 bottles and finished them quickly. I decided to return for a case, but missed out. Looking to find more. I want to cellar some of this, even though it is such an inexpensive wine. Side note; the copper & black labeling is attractive. Nice packaging.

This is one of those instances where I feel I must have had a different wine from the other reviewers. What others refer to as "charred black cherry fruit" and "distinctive grilled flavor," had to me the faint taste of burnt rubber. This was not nearly as pronounced as in some South African wines that I've tried, for instance, but it did not make me love the wine. Otherwise, yes, it had plenty of fruit. I guess I don't do "rustic."
