Fun wine. Not amazing but really good quality for the money. Drinks like old world

2010. First bottle was corked and they replaced it after the aromas didn't blow off. Really nice accompaniment to the churrasco.

Chilean Syrah? You betcha. Darkly hued and easy drinking. Big but not heavy. More of the mineral, herb & mocha Syrah stylings as opposed to those with dark berries, cherries, and plums. Wonderful loooong lasting finish. Very nice for the $20 range.

Certainly deserving of the 9.0 rating that helped persuade me to purchase and try it, possibly the best Syrah I have ever tasted. Excellent combination of oak and fruit on the palate with a delightful addition of spicy tannin for texture. A more than ideal pairing with red meat.

Has a nice smell but tasted like lollipop with a sour finish and dry mouth...

Nice but not our favourite Montes Alpha wine. Merlot the best along with the Carminere

One of my recent favorites. Increasingly impressed by Costco selection. Great, rich Syrah.
