Winemaker Notes

The nose opens on subtle notes of black fruit such as blackberry and blackcurrant, followed on airing by delicate touches of oak and black pepper. The round and full attack displays the expressive black fruit notes found on the nose. The tannic structure typical of Syrah lends attractive body and heft to the mid-palate, sustained by elegant notes of black and grey pepper, followed by a beautifully long finish distinguished by a remarkable return of fruit flavors and refined toasted notes.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

This is a fantastic syrah with dark berries, spices, such as cloves and nutmeg, and hints of black tea. Gravel undertone. Medium to full body and light tannins. Juicy finish.

V 89
Vinous

A Syrah from Buin, Maipo, aged in used wood. Raspberry jam, chutney and licorice flavors are discernible on an otherwise shy nose. Indulgent and fleshy in the mouth; the flavors feel hollowed-out. Moderately acidic and flowing on the tongue. This is a curious wine.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
