Wine Review: An impressive red blend from the Maipo Valley in Chile. In the glass it is a deep ruby color and has a very fragrant bouquet of black currant and violets, with some hints of black cherry, cedar, tar, green olive, and wet slate. On the palate it is refined, layered, and polished, with a full body and wonderfully integrated acidity. It has great balance and freshness. There are fruit flavors of black currant, blueberry, and blackberry. I also detected some hints of chocolate, black coffee, black olive, and oak. The layers continue to build with each sip. The fine-grained tannins and slightly herbal flavored finish lasts for a very long time. It is drinking nicely now. You could also give it a couple more years in the cellar. This is one to enjoy on its own by the fire pit or pair with a bacon wrapped filet mignon. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: The color is intense, deep ruby-red with violet highlights. The nose is intense and potent revealing black fruit aromas with predominant notes of blackberry, blackcurrant, and black cherry. Spices such as black pepper gradually mingled with subtle aromas of cedarwood, vanilla, caramel, and toasted hazelnuts imparted by oak aging. The Palate starts out lush and complex with good concentration accompanied by elegantly structured and wonderfully ripe tannins. Nicely balanced with a natural freshness that brings out a complex aromatic expression where wild blueberry and blackberry notes elegantly intertwine with Asian spices and a hint of toffee. The exceptionally persistent finish combines power and elegance, accounting for this wine’s excellent aging potential.
