Cono Sur '20 Barrels' Syrah 2008

Cono Sur '20 Barrels' Syrah 2008 from the Limari Valley - 90 pts Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes

2/1/12
This cooler climate red from the northern reaches of Chile's Limari Valley shows cool climate Shiraz at its finest. The nose combines a slight eucalyptus/mint top note, that with aeration submerges into the fruit, along with suggestions of espresso over darker currant and blackberry fruit aromatically. Sleekly textured, this has nice fruit concentration on its medium fuller frame, with dark currant fruit touched up with a wisp of darker chocolate and a mineral vein supported by finer tuned tannins on the finish. Showing well now this should hold up nicely over the course of the next 2-3 years.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 10/15/10
Rich but racy, delivering dark fig, blackberry and black currant fruit carried by a prominent graphite spine. Hints of espresso, baker's chocolate and mineral backfill the lengthy finish.
