Korta 2007 Syrah (Chile)
Disappointed with the display of my Danzante wine I turned to a wine I had, and bought, during the PMA Chairman's Gala. This wine wasn't exactly the Primitivo I was looking for (see below) - but neither did it try to hide what it really was. Dark in colour, a nose of pepper, spice and dark fruit followed on the palate by lots of spice, cassis, blackberry, pepper and plenty of tannin. The long peppered-raspberry finish added to the enjoyment and went well with the chicken and Sante Fe rice I had for dinner. Do I lament the Danzante wine? Sure I do. But this Syrah proved to hit the spot and made me forget my momentary sadness.
