Tasting notes
Of intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco and leathery notes. Strong and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant and satisfying after taste. A superb Syrah.

Rating
2009: 91 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Alpha Syrah contains 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier. It spent 12 months in French oak. The aromatics receive a pleasing lift from the Viognier component in addition to notes of meat, game, lavender, and blueberry. Rich, layered, and long, this pleasure-bent Syrah has the structure to evolve for another 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2013 to 2021. "


Wine maker notes
From our "La Finca" Estate, in the Apalta Valley, The scarcest of our ALPHA line, it shows how promising the Apalta Valley slopes are. Yield is very low, only 6 tons per hectare. It has been aged in French oak for one year and had only one soft filtering. Aurelio has added 7% of Cabernet Sauvignon and a 3% of Viognier to the final blend. Of intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco and leathery notes. Strong and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant and satisfying after taste. A superb Syrah.
