Carabantes Syrah 2012
The Syrah here is called Carabantes, named after the Dominican Monk that brought the first vitis vinifera to Chile, which in the dry and warm vintage of 2012 shows plenty of balsamic aromas of Mediterranean herbs and berries. The 2012 Syrah Carabantes fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts after a cold soak, and the wine fermented in 50/50 French and American oak barrels for 15 months. The nose is quite oaky and extremely balsamic (this vineyard is surrounded by eucalyptus trees) in a way that made me think of a Shiraz from Australia -- aided perhaps by the aromatics lent by the American oak and with the classical smoky bacon notes. This is a Syrah from a warm zone, ripe and heady with round, fleshy tannins and a velvety texture, with some oak tannins in need of being resolved. For fans of the style. 20,336 bottles were filled in July 2013. Drink Date: 2017-2019. Score - 90. (Luis Gutiérrez,, Dec. 30, 2015 )
