Thick and starting to deepen in color. Nose has menthol and dark brooding berries. This is day 2 open and the menthol is really taking trip on the nose. More than I remember on day 1. The tannins are silky and acidity still present, but fading. Green menthol and dark berries, blue and black, pine needles too and a bit of forest floor. Tasty. — 2 months ago
I think this is my last bottle, 🙁. It is showing very well. Still a deep, vibrant purple violet color. Nose offers fleshy black fruits, with just enough herbal/leafy/tobacco-cigar box to lend interest but not obscure the fruit. The texture is resolved and ample, medium+ body. Served w falafel and homemade sourdough, griddled flatbreads. — a month ago

Medium minus on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 12 year old Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon blend is very enjoyable. Drinking very nicely now with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Right out of the bottle, it is a very earthy with lots of green vegetable notes, smells like a garden. Once it opens up, it is so much better.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and remove much of the vegetable notes.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with 3 different Brie cheeses. Big and bold, rich and extracted.
A blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Carmenere, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
$30. — 2 months ago
