A native French variety, this grape extinguished almost completely after the great phylloxera plague. It resurfaced in Chile at the end of the XX century, where it breeds wines of intense color, soft and round tannins, and restrained acidity. Characteristic aromas of chocolate, coffee and, in a subtler way, moist soil.
Have been getting serious about wine in the last few years and this is one of the finest wines in this price range. Very unique. Loved it
I drink this wine almost daily.. Smooth, complex wine with robust overtones of blackberry. Plus at around $10, it is an unbeatable value!
