Geo Wines 2009 Chono Syrah Reserva - 88+pts

Geo Wines 2009 Chono Syrah Reserva (Elqui Valley) Chile

Availability: Limited. Private wine stores or special order
Cost: $18
Alcohol: 14%
Date Tasted: March 2nd, 2012

Tasting Notes: There's an impressive amount of elegance and diversity packed into this under $20 Syrah from Geo Wines. Produced in the Elqui Valley, one of Chile's most northern and driest wine regions, this savoury, terroir expressing Syrah offers a gorgeous palate of oak spice, minerals, smoked meats, leather and dark, brooding fruit. Has the tannins and acid to keep another 4+ years and may develop further, but don't let that keep you from enjoying it right way. Drink 2012-2016.
