Little coffee, a little green tomato plant, and some plum. A really solid Cabernet.

This wine unfortunately was placed in the wrong spot in the line up. Too many quality heavy hitters surrounded it. This is a medium bodied wine with light mouth watering red fruit and heavy tannin.

Powerful. Deep garnet w purple hue. Cassis, black fruits and cedar, vanilla. Not vegetal, not so complex but concentrated. Dry (slightly sweet from aroma), mid acidity, dense but smooth tannin. Abv14.5%

2012. For a moment we thought it was corked(after trying a huge fruit bomb); quickly realized that it was a PROFOUND stoney minerality and earthiness. This is seriously Bordeaux from Chile
