    Winemaker's Notes:

    Maycas Reserva Especial Syrah is an intense ruby red with purple hues. Lush aromas of blueberry and blackberry mix harmoniously with hints of black pepper and toast. Full-bodied and smooth with dense black fruit flavors that highlight the overall elegance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A whirlwind of black fruit flavors, this slowly reveals earthy notes of limestone and ash, scents that are typical of syrahs from Chile's north. The structure is hard, with tension built on acidity, and firm tannins supporting the weight of the fruit. Still very young, this wine will gain complexity and charm with four or five years of age.

    The 2008 Maycas Syrah Reserva Especial is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose offers up bacon, game, violets, blueberry, and blackberry leading to a medium-bodied wine with plenty of ripe, spicy fruit, very good volume, excellent balance, and 3-4 years of aging potential. It will deliver pleasure from 2013 to 2020.
