Kingston Family Casablanca Valley Lucero Syrah 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Interesting aromas of dark plum, roasted meat, mesquite, and pepper on the nose
Full bodied and dense on the palate
Long finish of dark fruit and pepper
Here's a very good Syrah from Chile. It's dark, rich, and interesting. Like much of the Syrah produced in California and Washington, it exhibits rich fruit and pepper. It also has a roasted meat aroma which makes this wine a bit exotic. For $17 or so, I recommend this wine and suggest you serve it alongside a hearty meat dish. Raise a glass!
