Montes Alpha Syrah 2014
Wine Spectator"Designation: Smart Buys" A lithe, rich and concentrated red, with dark plum, currant and bramble flavors flanked by Asian spice and mocha notes. Dark chocolate details fill the creamy and sumptuous finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,300 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastThis is opaque in color, with oaky, balsamic aromas of black fruits, mint and vanilla. In the mouth, this is muscular, with full and somewhat rough tannins. Toasty roasted blackberry flavors are peppery, minty and fully spiced, while on the finish this is packing all sorts of power and oak. Drink through 2021.
