Beppi Scores Both 90/100
Santa Rita Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Chile
Plum, chocolate and a classic Chilean note of mint rest on a tannic spine. It has an invigorating acidity with a dollop of spice on the finish. Great value.
Emiliana Adobe Reserva Syrah 2009, Chile
Full, dark and plummy, this drinks like a wine twice its price. And it shows impressive varietal character, with a classic Rhone Valley syrah dusting of cracked pepper and chewy tannins. Pair it with roast game birds or braised red meats.
