Reviews and Ratings

From the Limarí Valley wine region, Chile's Tabalí Vetas Blancas 2016 Syrah is well-priced under $20. Savoury and full-bodied with dark plum, black currant wild herbs, tomato leaf and pepper spice flavours on the palate with a streak of minerality and grippy tannins running through it. Pair with beef pepper steak. - Community Wine Reviews
