Winemaker's Notes

 e word Coyam, meaning oak, was used by the Mapuches, the original inhabitants of Chile. Ancient oaks surround the Emiliana vineyards where these biodynamic grapes are grown. Aged in French and American oak for 13 months, the palate off ers well-balanced volume, round tannins, and a long fi nish that shows both character and personality.

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
90 Points

"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. "
90 Points

"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."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
