Tapaculo Syrah 2013

Tapaculo SyrahPurchased from Splash Wines, $19.95 ($8 with membership)


Aaron:  The nose on this syrah was potent and a bit stinky with black currant and muddy pine forest.  The juicy flavor was palatable with some mild tannins and a lot of metal.  I got mostly silver and grant minerals; overall a rocky dry riverbed on the palate.  88 points

Teri: This wine carries characteristics of a Chilean wine but with additional bolder flavors from the Syrah grape. Its full body and a long finish make it perfect to pair with bold foods. Flavors of cherrywood, dried plum, cedar, and pepper stay on your palate long after the swallow. 88 points
