WINE OF THE MONTH-JULY

VINA MONTES SYRAH COLCHAGUA VALLEY ALPHA APALTA VINEYARD 2005, $20, 90 POINTS

The Wine Spectator just gave this one a 92 point score, which is definitely worth noting. It has concentrated aromas of black cherry, blackberry and hints of vanilla and mineral. The fleshy, deep body boasts very ripe black fruit, including black cherry with hints of blackberry leading into a long finish of vanilla, toast and a light minerally pepper spice. Well-concentrated fruit dominates and separates this from past vintages, which have also been stellar. Widely available and very impressive for the price.
