Montes Alpha Colchagua Valley Apalta Vineyard Syrah 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Boysenberry, coffee, and spice notes fold into a bouquet on the nose

Full bodied and firm

Beautiful layers of black raspberry, dark chocolate, and herbs on the finish


This wine seems to have become more widely available as of late. It's a great introduction to the type of Syrah that's being produced in Chile, which seems to have huge potential in the sunny, high altitutde vineyards alongside Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is very good, beatifully layered, dark, rich, and firm. I paid $17 and have seen it priced more typically around $20. Raise a glass!

Thanks for this review. I love syrahs, and this one looks like a bargain. Will definitely pick up a bottle soon.
