Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals were first introduced to Errazuriz Max Reserva Syrah on New Year's Eve 2007. We loved it. Along with Lynne's little black dress cut a tad too low that she paired with an unfortunate choice of zebra lingerie that shone like a beacon of bad taste in every photo taken that evening, Errazuriz Max Reserva Syrah was memorable. A rich red at a reasonable price that will complement any similarly carnivorous dish, it's a great restaurant selection. Subsequent introductions to other members of the Errazuriz family have been similarly positive. A meaty wine at a decent price.
Lee Newby, AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 100% Syrah
Very good minus wine with blueberries and black plums over sweet garden herbs and baking spice with a strong very pleasant floral note. The fruit concentration is medium plus. The medium tannins are grippy and will smooth with age. The wine has good complexity. The wine is drinking now and wll improve for 1-2 years then drink for a further 4-5.

Bright ruby-red in colour, with an expressive nose that shows sweet spices
such as cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg that come from the oak barrels and
heighten the wine’s fresh fruit profi le, while light meaty and balsamic touches
lend complexity. The smooth palate has fi ne tannins that create a fi rm but
friendly attack and fl avours that confi rm the aromatic profi le, dominated by
the sweet spices and red and black fruits. An excellent acidity
promises a long life ahead in the bottle.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
