Rios de Chile
2009 Gran Reserva Syrah
Chile: Cachapoal Valley
Today’s Rios de Chile Wine 2009 Gran Reserva Syrah is a Chilean wine and Syrah lover’s dream. This is a delicious, easy-drinking, complex wine that will have Syrah lovers doing a little jig. Especially when you consider its low price.
This Syrah is wonderfully aromatic and layered with fruit, spice and earthen flavors. Our tasting panel really loved this wine and we offer it to you with our very hearty recommendation.
Please note: We purchased every bottle that we could get our hands on for you, but don’t expect this wine to be around for very long. Once we’ve sold out, you’ll never see this wine again.
A beautiful dark magenta at its core, with a glint of red ruby at the edge.
Wonderfully light on the nose, with clear herbal notes of rosemary and sage mingling with fresh cherry, sweet plum, cedarwood, clove, black peppercorn, and sweet vanilla bean.
Well balanced and positively delicious, with cherry, strawberry, and boysenberry compote laid atop sweet tobacco leaf, slight earthy mushroom, mint leaf, thyme, dark chocolate, and a lean minerality.
This cool climate Syrah has a lengthy and well structured finish, with integrated tannins and an acidity that almost pops on your tongue.
A cider-braised pork shoulder served atop caramelized sweet onions.
