Wine Spectator 91 points - A suave red, with an intense juiciness to the raspberry, cherry and ripe tangerine flavors. Fresh acidity gives this good lift. The creamy finish is supported by medium-grained tannins. Syrah, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre and Malbec. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases imported.-KM

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2011 Coyam is a blend of 38% Syrah, 31% Carmenere, 19% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest equal parts Mourvedre (Monastrell), Malbec and Petit Verdot from the Los Robles estate in Colchagua. “Coyam” is the old word for oak forest (los robles), the name of the vineyard where the fruit is grown. The 2011 has a ripe, peachy, cherry and smoke nose, with hints of cured meats. We also tasted the 2010, 2007 and 2001 versions of this wine, all cool vintages, but the blend has been changing from eminently Bordeaux to a predominance of Syrah plus Carmenere (and the Merlot has disappeared). This has resulted in a juicier, meatier wine, with chewy tannins. This is a powerful red blend, very well crafted, slightly international-styled. Drink now-2018. (Jun 2014)
