Grandes Vinos Y Vinedos S.A. Beso De Vino Syrah Grenache 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Lots going on in this surprising value. Coffee, vanilla, stewed red currants and cherries. Sweet earth and some underbrush elements also making themselves evident. I'm 88 on this wine. (ottawawinejournal.com)
|Eat Magazine Jan/11 - 3.5 stars...."New world meets old Sapin....Notes of earthy cherry and currants lead to a robust and juicy palate with flavours of black cherry, pepper, dusty cocoa and savoury spice.."|
89/100 Wine Advocate (vol 188), April 2010..."Black cherry and blue berry aromas lead to a dense, plush savory wine which finishes with no hard edges. It is shockingly good for the money.."
4 stars - Vic Harradine, Winecurrent, Sept 26/11
87/100 Dave Lawrason, Ottawa Magazine, Aug/11
