Province: San JuanFinca Las Moras Gran Syrah 2006
Grapes: 100% Syrah
Aging: 18 months in French and American oak
A dark, garnet color and a very faint nose of moss and cooked hamburger – no kidding – make a stark contrast to the explosion of black and red raspberry in the mouth. It’s still a bit tannic and not wholly refined, but the finish is clean and it’s a bracing experience overall. Several minutes after drinking, the raspberries are still present!
