A great Malbec! Red berries, new oak, white pepper, and barnyard on the nose. Spices and red currant on the palate Sturdy bodied with high alc and round drying tannins. Medium minus acidity.
UPDATE: Reportedly, this is aged entirely in concrete! Thus, my oak nose note is off.

From one of the leading lights of the Chilean counter movement of wine, Pedro Parra, a doctor of terroir, soil and a very talented and well respected winemaker.
The Imaginador Cinsault is sourced from granitic soils in the region of Itata, dry farmed of course. Partially whole clusters, light extraction and matured in a mix of old oak and concrete for 12 months.
It is definetely not a shy wine, near provacative in its profile yet with respect and the fundamentals intact. Ripe but fresh strawberries, bramble, red currants with a very prominent savouriness of crushed stones, black pepper and an almost overwhelmingly smoked meatiness. Palate is light and fresh, directed by its acidity, a slight, smooth grip from the tannins, good fruit intensity but falls a wee short on the final. Quenchanble but serious and a fun drinker. — 4 days ago
