Montes Alpha Colchagua Valley Syrah

Smells of escargot in shallots.

This is one of those wines you should always have on the shelf, when you need a guaranteed well made Syrah.

Green pepper, smoke, fat, bright acidic fruit, dried plums, well integrated tannins with that acidity, tabac, and cocoa bring up the rear, and linger on.

Coyam Los Robles Estate Red Blend 2011

Blackberries, blueberries, with a little raspberries and cranberries mixed in. This is a blend of Rhône and Bordeaux grapes, with the Rhône seeming to me to be dominant, but tempered. The nose has some herbs and a hint of tobacco leaf. Minerality is a mix of stones and earth with a bit of dry dust. The acidity seemed nicely balanced, and tannins low to moderate. I would have liked a little more of the latter. But it was a good price for the quality. — 25 days ago

Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot

Big bold and as the name suggests, almost purple in the glass. Still young but very enjoyable with rich fruit flavours and some delicate fragrance provided by the small amount of petit Verdot. Tannins are present but not too drying or intrusive, will be nice to see how this wine develops. — 16 days ago
