This wine was a ridiculous bargain. It was originally a $15-20 wine several years ago, and one of my local shops somehow got a case of it that they were selling for $5 a bottle. I might have been concerned that it was over the hill, but the color was great, and it had a fair degree of sediment indicating a wine made with minimal intervention. Anyways, the first day, the wine was clearly vibrant and concentrated, with good purity of fruit, and some structure, but it was still a bit closed - still, I could tell it was a great bargain at $5, and likely fair value at it's intended $15-20 tag. It was very much identifiable as a syrah-based wine, and could have easily passed for having been from Santa Ynez or the Northern Rhone as opposed to the San Antonio region of Chile, I put it on a vacuum pump and it proceeded to get better each of the next couple of days. Very extracted, smooth, and fine, could have passed for something like a vin du pays from a top Cote Rotie producer in a good year - but without the place typicity of the Grand Cru terroir. Must buy some more of this. A very fine Chilean Syrah, more reminiscent of the better California versions of this grape than most of it's compatriots from Chile.
