Rating: ***+ 2003 Santa Ema Syrah, Cachapoal Valley, Chile

Review: This Chilean estate was established by an Italian, Pedro Pavone Voglino, in 1917. The wine is a deep red mahogany in color. On the nose, it has smokey, round syrah characteristics, not unlike Australian syrah in character, although more restrained. The palate is pleasant - full, round, light oak, light tannin, modest finish. Elegant, full package for a modest Chilean wine. Very nice with a South American sampler dinner.
