97 pts. Guía Mesa de Cata (La Cav) Ganador Syrah Mejor de Casablanca 95 pts. Tim Atkin, Wine of the Year, 2021 Report, Awarded First Growth Classification 93 pts. Descorchados 91 pts. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate Luis Gutíerrez:”The 2019 Lucero Syrah is the first bottling from the new style I have tasted, and what a change! It has a Northern Rhône profile with intense aromas of tapenade, violets, smoked bacon and tar. It’s pungent but with a sense of lightness that I like very much. There’s no trace of oak, and there’s great purity.”

 

Description

Like the Bayo Oscuro from the same year, the grapes used to make the 2019 Lucero Syrah came from the 1999-planted hillside of decomposed granite. This wine is an exemplar of a true cold-weather Syrah. It contains essences of blackberries and blueberries, with smooth and polished tannins. Herbal notes and acidity interact with a fruit-forward expression to create a wine that is more relaxed on the palate. This wine is perfect to taste and enjoy now.
