Deep purple in color, with a lively, spicy nose rich with aromas of fresh herbs and black fruit. Distinctive flavors of the Upper Maipo Valley, such as blackberry and cassis, blend with notes of tobacco, earth and minerality, for an elegant style, that is well-balanced with astounding length.
"Crushed black cherry and blackberry mix with earthy tobacco, smoke and licorice notes. Full-bodied, with medium tannins and a long, smoky finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported."
"Smells a little volatile, but with airing there's enough baked fruit, leafiness, olive and tobacco to set things straight. Choppy and tannic on the palate, with herbal flavors of cassis, coffee and toast. Leafy and tasting of tobacco and olives on the finish. Drink now; contains 23% Syrah and Cab Franc in addition to CS and Carmenere."
We were disappointed in this wine since it had been given such a high rating. It was not smooth or bold, rather it was flat with a short finish.
