Emiliana Coyam 2005
from Chile, South America
ratings pedigree (past vintages):
Color: Intense violet.
Bouquet: Black fruit such as berries, cassis, and forest fruits, delicately blended with oak and soft mineral notes.
Taste: Well-balanced volume, soft, round tannins, and a long finish.
Enjoy COYAM with hearty red meats with mild sauces, lightly seasoned red meats, fresh cheeses, pastas with spicy sauces, and dried fruit.
"Concentrated, with a layer of creamy toast leading the way for blackberry and boysenberry fruit, dark cocoa, graphite and sweet tobacco. Has a lot of fruit in reserve, but also shows a nice note of terroir on the finish. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2009."
"The 2005 Coyam is composed of 45% Syrah, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 11% Carmenere, and 3% Petit Verdot. It was made with organically grown grapes and was aged in a mix of French and American oak. It exhibits an attractive array of pepper, vanilla, clove, cassis, and black fruit aromas. There is ample ripe fruit, very good flavors with some complexity, but the finish is quite firm bordering on hardness. Time is likely to round this wine out at which point my score will appear to be conservative.
The Wine Advocate
"Ruby-red. Spicy red- and blackcurrant aromas offer very good precision and are complicated by licorice and cocoa powder. Silky in texture, with concentrated red fruit preserve flavors, tangy minerality and slow-building tannins on the close. Offers a very suave blend of depth and vivacity."
