97 POINTSJames Suckling
“This is an unbelievable red with sublime tannin texture and mind-binding depth and finesse. The nose shows granite, slate, blackberry, blueberry, and lavender aromas. Full body yet agile and harmonious.”

93 POINTSWine & Spirits magazine
“Matetic planted the first Syrah vines in the San Antonio Valley, in 1998; they have farmed those vines under biodynamic principles since the beginning and use those original vines for this bottling, their top Syrah. Their far-coast vineyard and careful farming produce a refreshing Syrah, filled with vibrant red fruit flavors and spice. This wine gains depth with air, the texture taking on enough grip for lamb.”

Winemaker’s Notes - Julio Bastias
“The Matetic Syrah 2012 is dark violet red. Expressive and complex aromas reveal nuances of pepper, violet, olives, moistened earth, spices, and soft menthol notes. On the palate, it is balanced between fresh acidity and sweet velvety notes delivered by the soft yet potent tannins. The flavors confirm the complexity in the nose, filling the mouth with balance and finesse, leaving a prolonged finish. It has great aging potential and will benefit greatly by decanting a few house before serving.”
