Polkura Syrah 2006
This Colchagua valley syrah is a small production (1350 cases) gem that challenges the many over-sulfered cheaper examples from down south. This was juicy on the nose, with blackberry and cassis. The palate developed into a fruity but savory well structured wine with notes of herbs, wood and chocolate. The medium length finish kept up the intensity, rounding out what amounts to a very excellent value Chilean wine worth seeking out.
