This distinction was an important recognition for the enthusiasm, passion, and dedication he puts in crafting wines. “Wine is my passion and an important part of my life. I feel capable of leveraging the knowledge I’ve built throughout these many years", says Felipe.

2015 Tabali Syrah Vetas Blancas has a careful process in its process from the vineyard to the bottle. The grapes are harvested and selected manually. Fermented in small stainless-steel tanks and aged in 100% French Oak barrels for 12 months.
Tasting Notes:100% Syrah. Intense and deep color. Aromas of black cherry, pepper, spices, woody, and smoked notes. On the palate, it is balanced, with velvety tannins and a fruity aftertaste. Pair this wine with beef, lamb, and game, and perfect for spicy food.
This shows granite and dark berry character with lots of black licorice and hints of orange peel. Full body, tight and silky with integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish. ~93 James Suckling
