Deep ruby-red in color with violet nuances. The nose is very expressive with aromas of ripe blackberries, figs, crème de cassis, and hints of leather and dark chocolate. The palate is well balanced with bright acidity, smooth tannins, ample structure, and generous volume. The finish is long and considerably complex.
Highly recommended with red meats, stir-fried beef, pork chops, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops.
The 2018 Syrah Montes Alpha was co-fermented with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier from Apalta and Marchigüe before 55% of the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Dark violet in color. The concentrated nose offers aromas of blackberry and blueberry jam plus attractive sweet spice and leather notes. Indulgent with good volume; the slightly taut tannins lend structure to the lengthy finish. Drinking window: 2021 - 2026
