Albae Syrah 2015

The third red wine of the Bodega Albae wine tasting at TomeVinos Barrio Salamanca. This time a 100% Syrah grape variety and again matured for 6 months in French Oak barrels.

It is a medium intensity purple colour going slightly to ruby red. An interesting scent that reminded me of chorizo i.e cured meat and spices. Under this was a hint of berries and later came some wood.

Another dry red, with medium tannins and low to medium acidity. It has decent body and finish

This wine definitely had a spicy meaty flavour to it. There was hints of wood but not strong and some red currant.
