#15 Syrah 2006 (SnoothRank: 4.5/5)
Chile (July 2008)
This is a mysterious wine that shows itself gradually over time. On the nose it has a subtle floral note to begin haps plummy cherries and in the mouth there is big cherry fruit and blueberries (not the jammy blueberries of Zin but tighter more acidic blueberries that are really quite funky and rewarding.) It has a smokey quality with chocolaty notes and a finish that is meaty / bacony notes from warm climate Chilean Syrah. Drink with a stew with merken if you can find it. myRating 4/5
