A good well-made wine. Nose of red fruit, body full but not fruit forward with medium finish. — 18 hours ago
We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.
Nose has dried vanilla bean, dehydrated cherry, oak sawdust, mashed blackberry, used coffee grounds, dried strawberry and dried blueberry.
Palate has tanned leather, very dried cherry, over-ripe plum, plum skin, hardwood charcoal, dried raspberry with a mildly tannic grip remaining.
This bottle is in its sweet spot, likely will hold here (in proper storage) for another 5-8 years before decline. Don't ever count out Chilean wines for longevity!
Paired with a beautiful merlot steak from a local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm), boiled then smashed red potatoes finished with a compound herb butter and fresh, local asparagus. I'm finally grilling, and it's barely May!
(Also a stellar pairing with dark chocolate peanut butter cups!) — 2 years ago

Αυτό το κρασί έχει κάτι ανθρώπινο και κάτι από αέρα. — 3 years ago
Always worth having a bottle on the shelf -
Lightly Smoked green pepper, a wonderful nose.
Heavier bodied with some green tabaco, pepper, hints of Thai basil, oregano, rounded out with older staves and high licorice acidity.
This winery never disappoints.
