FALERNIA 2009 RESERVE SYRAH

Vina Falernia is located in the Elqui Valley, near the small town of La Serena, 300 miles north of Santiago and is at present, Chile's northernmost wine estate. The climate is semiarid with a dramatic contrast between day and night time temperatures. The soils in the vineyards are composed partly of rubble which has eroded from the Andes mountains and deposited by glaciers and wind, and partly of alluvial sand and silt deposited by the river. while stony, gravely soils are regarded as poor for most crops, their excellent drainage qualities make them perfect for wine growing.

ROBERT PARKER - "The 2009 Carmenere Syrah Reserva is sourced from three different vineyards in the Elqui Valley and 40% of the crop is aged in barrel for six months. It offers black currant and bilberry fruit on the well-defined, if rather one-dimensional nose. The palate is medium-bodied with peppery black fruit and a pinched, but crisp black cherry and cassis finish. Drink now-2015"
