Viña Falernia Syrah Reserva 2007
My favorite every day wine at the moment. Tastes better than many higher priced wines. Will add a case to my cellar.
This deep plum dry wine from Chile had a fruity smell but the taste was not strongly fruity. Taste of smokey spicy plum. Nice balance of acidity but a little alcoholic. Great for a BBQ.
Really intense spicy nose with hints of bacon. Nicely balanced with bright and vibrant acidity. I really liked the texture and mouthfeel. Reminded me of northern Rhone wines, great concentration, long finish with really balanced tannins.
Grow up in the middle of the desert, showing the best of Syrah. The best option is Gran Reserve and the price, in Chile, is around US$ 12,00.
Three and a half glasses
