James Suckling ReviewRated 95Beautiful aromas of dark fruit, walnuts and almonds. Full body, extremely integrated tannins and a long caressing finish. A blend of 38% syrah with 31% carmenere, 19%merlot, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 1% mourvedre and 1% malbec. A balanced and caressing textured red. Drink or hold.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91+The 2012 Coyam, one of the top of the range single vineyard wines from Emiliana, is a blend of 39% Syrah, 32% Carmenere, 17% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Mourvedre (Monastrell) and a pinch of Malbec -- a similar mix every vintage nowadays, from the Coyam vineyard in the Los Robles estate in Colchagua. Despite the vintage conditions of 2012 being warmer and riper that 2011, I feel more freshness and balance in the glass, more subtleness; this is a serious red blend with aromas borrowed from the Bordeaux and Mediterranean grapes, quite complex if not really exuberant or showy. The palate is juicy, ripe without excess with perhaps a touch of warmth in the finish. This is good value. Close to 250,000 bottles of this wine were produced in 2012.Wine Tasting NotesCoyam is an intense violet plum red in color with a nose that expresses aromas of ripe red fruits, plums, berries, and black fruits that meld elegantly with notes of spice, earth, and a touch of sweet vanilla. Well balanced and big bodied on the palate, with good structure and soft, round tannins. An intense, complex wine full of character. Recommended for cellaring.
