Pretty light, and elegant. Not enough fruit though, and not enough tannic structure for me.

Well integrated oak, violets, and blackberry jam. A suitable, heavier, pop and pour wine for a hot day.

Plummy and over extracted. Smooth and a touch of RS.

Chocolate and blueberries on the nose. Lighter body than expected, smooth with a bit of vanilla, but a lingering strange combination of tart berries and spice, and a good bit of acid. Interesting.

Earth, leather, and sour cherries. Had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful vineyard with breathtaking views of the Andes.

Clearly a higher elevation wine, and solid. Good wine but I dunno if the label price is backed up by the juice for this offering.
