The complex nose offers outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as figs and blackberries complemented by notes of crème de cassis, while spices such as cayenne pepper appear over a back of dark chocolate, which masterfully envelopes subtle aromas of leather and tobacco. The palate with perfectly rounded tannins that trigger an explosion of the fruit on the mid-palate. Food Pairing: Red, Charcuterie, Cheese.

Smoky, rubbery aromas of berry fruits and black currant lead to a fleshy, grabby, pulpy palate. Herbal berry and saucy plum flavors finish with herbal notes. Overall, this is plump, dark and honest for Chilean Cabernet, especially in a difficult year like 2016.

Fresh minerality is backed by crisp acidity in this firm red. Dried cherry and currant flavors linger on the finish, with some herbal notes. Drink now through 2021. 120,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
