Colchagua Valley, Chile / $10 Retail

An internationally acclaimed Syrah, this wine presents high quality at a bargain price. Portions of this 100 percent estate-grown Syrah were barrel-aged for almost a year in a combination of French and American oak. After bottling, the wine rested in the cellars for an additional three to four months before release. It offers dark fruit, leather and earthy aromas with oaky notes and hints of vanilla. Taste red berry fruits including currants and cherry tinged with spice and herbal notes, smoke and toast. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with roasted or grilled meats, duck, wild game and stews. Buy it at: Cost Plus World Market locations in Harahan, Harvey and Covington. — Brenda Maitland
