Korta 2007 Syrah (Chile)
I just finished giving a talk called "Gadgets, Gizmos and Games" to the Ontario Wine Society and returned to the house of the folks putting me up for the night. I always like to bring something along to share, and usually something that goes against the grain of what I have been sampling at an event; nothing can be as opposite from Ontario wine as Chilean. This Korta Syrah I have reviewed in the past, and liked it so much that I decided to share it with my friends at the Cozy Couch (where I was staying). This wine can be summed up quite simply as "juicy" - the fruit is blackberry, while the backers are vanilla and spice. The palate is smooth and lush and the nose is very inviting. A great wine to end the evening with.
