Tasting Notes: "I'd like a juicy, with a side-order of juicy please." "One Chakana Syrah coming right up sir!"

Add a touch of mint, dark berries and cherry cola and you've described the simple, but effective "Yaguarete Collection" Syrah from Chakana, a blended wine from multiple vineyard sites in the Andes mountains of Mendoza, Argentina. The concentration is a bit over-extracted and the finish is disappointingly short, but the flavours, texture and food-friendliness is satisfying. A decent wine for the price. Drink 2010-2012.
