Hot Chiles.

Rayun, Maipo Valley, Syrah, 2006.

I can't remember if I've ever blogged on a Chilean wine, my guess is that NO I have not. And really not for any other reason than we just haven't bought any. You know, we stick to the Frenchies and Italianos mainly, and that's just because I hate being disappointed and at this point in my life, I've been a drinkin' a lot and I know what mama wants. 

That said, it was fun to taste something other than Cabernt Franc for a change. And no this isn't from the Peter Weygandt book, so that's another change too. I really enjoyed this wine - very varietally correct, tasted like syrah, and Susan, from Venokado, nailed it. Of course she did because she's just that good. 

And get this... it's CHEAP... like really cheap... A very respectable wine for $10 at Silverlake Wine.
