Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Free Mix Match Case Shipping! Fans of full-bodied, Rhone style reds know how hard it is to come across a 95 Point Syrah for $20...Even James Suckling says "Believe that price." A limited edition crafted at Vina San Pedro's El Platero vineyard, the soil here is made up primarily of deep yellow granite and large stones. It's also one of the best place in the entire world for stargazing, because there is such little water vapor in the atmosphere. That means less non-organic material needed for vineyard management, and a greater focus on biodynamics. Highly influenced by direct sun exposure and a constant wind that whips down from the Andes, the soil and climate are geared towards Syrah, and that's exactly what they planted. James Suckling has called this wine a "classic Syrah with a Hermitage clarity and firmness," and listed it among his Top 100 Wines of the Andes.
