Deep ruby. Nose and medium-full palate of boysenberry, vanilla cassis, and dark rose. Fruit forward, but darker fruit and definitely not a “fruit bomb.” Medium minus acidity. Medium minus tannins. Classic Chilean style Cab with good fruit, but still enough earthy and herby characteristics to make for a nice all-around red. Great with grilled meats or hard cheeses. Drink now through 2027.

Fantastic Chilean Cab Sauv. You really can't find this complexity ANYWHERE at double this price point. Ripe blackberries, cassis, blue berries. Cocoa, vanilla, and ethereal eucalyptus. Full body, velvety tannins and bright acidity. Go buy a case.

A very well balanced cab . The tannins and the acidity match , the notes of deep rich red fruits and a smooth Oaked finish are great ... I would buy this again no doubts

With ribeye steak and grilled vegetable coulis with goat cheese and black cherry balsamic. Great pairing.

Hazy dark purple mixed with dark ruby, with brownish tone on the rim. Nose of dominant cocoa, leather, tobacco leaves, with some dark fruits in the background. Taste of seducing acidity, subtle sweetness from cherry jam, dried strawberries, firm tannins, a bit cocoa and some zesty note. The taste is so saturated and abundant with flavors. Aftertaste of some dried strawberries, lingering tannins, tobacco leaves, and some zest, medium long. What a pleasant surprise from Costco.
