Check out the depth of flavor in this syrah grown in El Rosario, ten miles from the sea. The wine’s blackberry and black cherry flavors mesh with herbal details and black pepper notes. Give it several hours in a decanter, and you’ll find something wilder in the flavor, closer to raw meat, powering its firm fruit through the finish.
Evidence is showing that Matetic is rising to the top of Chile's Syrah mountain. This is a floral, heady, deep wine with bold black fruit aromas. Boldness is key throughout, and the palate delivers pure wild berry, blackberry and cassis flavors. Smooth yet powerful; a voluminous wine with class and character. Drink now through 2014.
Dense and well-layered, with plum skin, blackberry preserve and anise flavors, followed by briar, spice and graphite notes. The long, grippy finish has a juicy underpinning.

"Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, violet, mocha and licorice, with a smoky overtone. Lush and expansive on entry, offering sweet blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors, then tighter in the mid-palate, which shows a bitter cherry quality. Finishes with supple tannins and lingering smokiness. This would compete with plenty of high-end California syrahs."

Wine Review: This pitch black colored Syrah from Chile is one of the best Syrah's that I have recently tried from Chile. It opens with a lead pencil, plum, and rhubarb bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth, and balanced. The flavor profile is a tart blueberry and spicy plum blend with notes of oak and black pepper that stand out. The finish is dry and its building tannins are big and sticky. This young Syrah would benefit from decanting in the near term. Serve it with beef brisket in the near term if you can't resist. You can safely cellar it 5+ years. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Matetic EQ Syrah 2008 a dark violet color, almost black exhibiting the characteristic aromas of Syrah with notes of spices such as pepper, fruits such as black cherry and blackberry all mixed in a surprising complexity. It is concentrated on the palate; the tannins are firm but rounded. It is a balanced wine, fresh and with long persistent finish.
