Falernia Syrah Reserva 2009 (Chile) Add to ...

  • Rating 91
  • Year 2009
  • Varietal Syrah
  • Food Pairing Braised red meats
  • Price $16.95

The Elqui Valley in northern Chile is exceedingly dry and tends to coax out intense fruit flavours. This is like a turbocharged version of decent Northern Rhône syrah, with tar, licorice and cracked pepper adding interest to the velvety, concentrated fruit and luscious chocolate and vanilla. Match it to braised red meats. $17.99 in B.C.
