$17, 5 stars, 92 points, chile, curico valley, Naked Wines, syrah
Medium ruby in the glass with thick legs (13.5% ABV). On the nose I get eucalyptus, menthol, black plum, perfume, super-ripe black currants and vanilla. The palate is dry with medium acidity, gorgeously smooth medium (+) tannins and a full body. Flavors of blackcurrant, black plum, vanilla and a hint of menthol all intertwine around a lovely mouthfeel. This is a very tasty Syrah folks, with good structure built for the medium term. With a medium length finish I get loads of fruit and fading tannins. It begs for Pepper Steak and a side of gratin potatoes. I would drink this 92 point Syrah till 2027. For $17 it gets 5 stars and possibly a cellar stock-up. Salut….
