PAGO DEL AMA Syrah Viño de la Tierra de Castilla 2001
92 points, $75
This bold red shows an inky color and powerful aromas of game and black pepper, which lead to a thick, rich palate and flavors of blackberry, licorice, espresso, mineral and spice. More intense than polished, it has a savage beauty. Drink now through 2012 —Thomas Matthews
