Viña Falernia Syrah Reserva 2007
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

Dark and winey, but not heavy, with lots of ripe, fleshy plum and blackberry fruit layered with white pepper, iron and violet notes. There s ample toast, but it s well-integrated, with a long finish. Drink now through 2012.
