Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Syrah, 10% Carmenère, 5% Merlot CS & Syrah Cachapoal valley; Carmenère and Merlot, Maipo

Color: Purple-black

Nose: Dense, tightly layered nose with hints of chocolate, plum pudding, and licorice

Mouth: Very pure entry on the palate…the fruit that is somewhat timid and plays a minor role in the nose is on full display now. A ripe plum and blackcurrant with a hint of violets (retro-nasal), cola, and an elegant minerality. The increased presence of Syrah in this year's blend no doubt brought added volume and softness to the tannin profile.

My Notes:
