With a bright and clean deep purple color, this wine offers a complex nose, in which notes of wild berries, blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry can be felt, as well as a subtle French oak aroma, in perfect balance with the fruit. In the mouth plum and strawberry, accompanied by a slight sweetness, principally from the merlot, can be found. It's intense, balanced and round, with ripe tannins and a long finish.
"The 2008 Finis Terrae is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% Syrah aged for 14 months in 65% new French barriques. It offers an enticing perfume of exotic spices, balsam wood, tobacco, lavender, and assorted red and black fruits. In the glass it displays enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023. At the modest asking price, it is an outstanding value. "
