2008 Viña Casablanca El Bosque Winemaker's Choice Syrah, Rapel Valley
Chilean syrah has been getting a lot of press recently, earning itself a feature in a recent issue of Decanter magazine. Since I aspire to have a British palate, time to start drinking! And well, because I love syrah, especially cooler climate examples, which this bottle professes to be.
Maybe I shouldn't have gone for the sub-$15 wine. Jammy, flabby, non-varietal flavours. A South American disaster.....moving on.
