Like picking up a cute Chilean Chihuahua & finding you have a German Shepard on hand: on opening all disjointed & astringent, like many a 14$ wine is. But behold, several minutes later in glass & the pedigree begins to show: a firm light-medium body, medium + acidity, a tannic structure- think Etna, but meaner (the Shepard)-gorgeous black & dark red fruits, with that volcanic mineral undertow. From old, ungrafted Pais vines. Like really old, pre- phylloxera. A little chill works here too. Pais? Chile? Not your cute pop ‘n pour, just give it that mini decant & ye shall see the light. — 6 months ago

Bought @ Santiago wine club, with the Patagonian flag in background.
- a lively nose of ozone and all that goes with it
Bright, at first, with berry, mint, cherry stones, peach pit.
Light bodied, with good viscosity.
Clay and earth see this wine wrap up with an electrifying epitaph.

Cherry, strawberry smell, vanilla, tarragon, butterfly bush, light pink color, strawberry, wild raspberry, burlap, the acid is full and jammy but wine isn’t jammy but fresh, minimal tannins — 2 years ago
The wine is simply delicious for the silly price of 5€. It is pleasently sweet and fruity, smells great as well. A real crowd pleaser. — 4 years ago
