Viña Tamaya 2010 Reserve Syrah - 88-89pts

Viña Tamaya 2010 Reserve Syrah (Limari Valley) Chile

Availability: BCLDB stores. Spec order
Cost: $19
Alcohol: 14%
Date Tasted: March 2nd, 2012

Tasting Notes: Inspired by Northern Rhone vinification techniques, this Syrah is co-fermented with 5% Viognier and aged in French oak for 9-12 months creating an enticing Syrah with good minerality and aromatic elements. Black olive, violet, blackberry and dark cherry characters aplenty. Sits bright in the mouth with strong acid and tannins and would benefit from another year of bottle aging. Drink 2013-2017.
