Viña Alicia

Vina Alicia Syrah 2007

90 pts Wine Enthusiast Magazine - Aggressive sweet and sauvage flavors of grilled meats, spice and burnt brown sugar.

Tasting Notes

Mild, perfumed, rounded and warm. There is a depth to it, with gentle, abundant tannins. It takes two hours to elicit its smoky and mineral aroma with cocoa, mulberry, spice and vanilla notes. The ripeness of the grape has left its heritage of complexity.

Food Accompaniments

Its delicate nature makes this wine ideal for being served with lean fish, duck, grilled pork and pasta.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Enthusiast Magazine
A touch leathery and cooked at first, but with time the bouquet deftly blends saucy, savory Syrah aromas with sun-baked black fruit notes. The palate is saturated and chunky with aggressive sweet and sauvage flavors of grilled meats, spice and burnt brown sugar. Roasted, warm and mildly better on the finish.

88 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (JR)
Bright red-ruby. Crushed blackberry, cranberry, smoked meat, licorice and pepper on the slightly reduced nose. Firmly built but a tad dry-edged, in need of more sweetness of fruit and juiciness. Finishes with dusty tannins.
90 pts Argovino September 2013
Two words: black cherry. Black cherry bouquet and black cherry flavor tell you everything you need to know about this syrah. Though the taste is direct and a somewhat monochromatic, there’s still enough structure to carry a long and indulgent finish where a few baking spices finally begin to emerge. It’s dark enough to go head-to-head with a Cornas any night of the week, after it’s had some time to breathe.
