Winemaker Notes

Maycas Reserva Especial Syrah is an intense ruby red with purple hues. Lush aromas of blueberry and blackberry mix harmoniously with hints of black pepper and toast. Full-bodied and smooth with dense black fruit flavors that highlight the overall elegance.

Wine & Spirits
A whirlwind of black fruit flavors, this slowly reveals earthy notes of limestone and ash, scents that are typical of syrahs from Chile's north. The structure is hard, with tension built on acidity, and firm tannins supporting the weight of the fruit. Still very young, this wine will gain complexity and charm with four or five years of age.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Maycas Syrah Reserva Especial is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose offers up bacon, game, violets, blueberry, and blackberry leading to a medium-bodied wine with plenty of ripe, spicy fruit, very good volume, excellent balance, and 3-4 years of aging potential. It will deliver pleasure from 2013 to 2020.

Maycas del Limari, , South America
Maycas del Limari
Located 250 miles north of Santiago, in the rapidly developing Limari Valley, Concha y Toro has developed an exciting new project, Maycas del Limarí. Maycas, means "croplands" in Quechua. This land was the foundation of the Inca Empire, the most powerful civilization in South America. Limarí takes its name from the Franciscan monk who first planted grapes here in 1548. The Limarí valley benefits from a strong coastal influence - more so than Chile's other coastal areas such as Casablanca, Marchigüe and San Antonio, as the coastal range of mountains which hugs the shoreline starts in Limarí, and features lower elevations than the rest of the range as it heads southward. That means more of the ocean breezes make their way up into the valley. The wines produced here reflect the luminosity of the zone, the minerality of the rich marine soils and the extraordinary coastal breezes. The Limarí area represents one of the longest growing seasons in the world for wine grapes. Maycas del Limarí Reserva Especial wines draw their inspiration from the Inca solar calendar, prominently displayed on each label.
