Kingston Family Vineyards Bayo Oscuro Syrah
Big Powerful Spicy Earthy

Winery Story

The Kingston Family first came to Chile in the early 1900's. Carl John Kingston, the patriarch and pioneer, came to Chile looking for copper... (more...) (good idea) and gold (crazy idea). "Gramps" Kingston was an American originally from Central Mine, Michigan, which exists only as a ghost town today in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Kingstons settled in Casablanca in the 1920s. Gramps' wanderlust yielded a 7,500 acre ranch with a herd of cattle but no gold. Through the years, generations of Kingstons have been raised in the "casa patronal" on the Farm in Casablanca. Our wine's label is inspired by this old house still standing today.

Tasting Note

The flavors in this wine run more toward the wild, spicy end of the spectrum, with the berryish fruit as more of a backup player. On the pal... (more...)ate, the wine is surprisingly approachable, with just a little grip and a touch less acidity than the 2003.

Very clean, earthy, not overly spicy. Short finish in the back of the throat. Really very nice.
