So interesting for a South American red. Used to them being dark, inky, and concentrated. This is light, fruity, and fresh, with a cranberry like red fruit character, and fine, silky tannins. Definitely tastes more Old World, reminiscent of Cru Beaujolais.

Spicy and tricky wine. Its flavors change on every bite. When i stick the tip of tongue in the glass, it pricks like pop rocks, or ginger. It has hearty, savory citrus flavors, like unsweet blood orange, kumquat; and its smoked, so there's also beef jerky. It smells almost exactly like beef jerky. Warms like whisky will.

280yr old vines from 🇨🇱. Easy drinking but nuanced enough to draw attention. Bright red fruit has me in love with this 1L bottle, and with a banging price to boot!

Cacique Maravilla Pipeno Pais 2016. These grapes are 100% organic wine. The soil has never been contaminated with pesticides. When I poured it from my coravin it bubbled in the glass. The color is almost like a pink sparkling wine. And the bouquet is sparkly fizzy fun on my nose. The initial bouquet is not far behind with a light tingle on my tongue. However this is a dry wine. It is very light with cherry and cranberry fruit. It is a very simple wine. The mid-palate loses all the fizz and flows into a nice semi dry finish. There are Earth tones and oak on the mid palate as well!!!!! This would be awesome slightly chilled to about 52 degrees on a hot day.

All for a funky wine, and at an affordable price! BUT this is a little too funky, borderline mouse. It's got good fruit and oak but it's overwhelmingly sour-y.
