Here's s beautiful red blend. A well balanced, great Chilean wine.
Dark inky in color.
Showing lots black fruits with earth, vegetables, spices, peppercorn, leather, cedar, leather, vanilla, dark chocolates, licorice, tobacco leaf and cloves.
Big, bold, extracted and spicy.
This 6 year old Bordeaux blend is rich, with great complexity and mouthfeel.
So very tasty already, but still young and needs another 5 to 10 years of bottle time.

Well this was interesting. Tasting after eachother:
Lynch Bages 2009
In all honesty I hope the LB is just in a numb phase. It didnt do the trick yet. Still has a lot of acids whilst drinking. The nose however is great but taste wise it doesnt match.
Sena is as Sena can be. In your face! Plenty of everything: blackfruit, sweet, ripe, some wood, umami always. Very yummi.
Then the Chadwick that is close to perfection. That is Sena but distinguished. Calm but present. Lush and you taste it for minutes. — 10 days ago
Color of different shades of purple, with some ruby tone, quite clear and nice legs. Nose is pretty good with tropical ripe fruits, like ripe mango, minty, vanilla, blackberry, and a bit spice. Taste is milky with some vanilla milk chocolate note, slightly sweet and grassy, low tannins, and fruity notes are really in the background, like strawberry and cherry, zest, a bit mineral, and a touch of black pepper. More mineral, more sweetness, and more tannins show in the aftertaste. Not your traditional cab, but will be welcome by most of the people due to her friendliness. — 25 days ago
On a Chile night when the budget won’t stretch to Almaviva or Sena, then this will do nicely. Plenty of rich fruit and complexity, with some tannin structure and a dry but flavoursome finish. 2016 produced a lot of Bordeaux like reds in Chile, I have tasted some very enjoyable stuff from that vintage. — 15 days ago
It's a very underrated wine. Rich nose. I know there are some fruits, but they are not important. They are an addition to leather, roasted pepper, tobacco (nose). It opens itself immediately. Mild on the palate, sweet. It's sweetness is a great balance between tobacco and some dark chocolate. And final surprise: third nose after the finish: coffee. — 6 days ago
