Ink in the glass. Vanilla, dark fruit, blackberries and plum on the nose transform into a full structured black fruit stew. Heavy tannins suggest giving the bottle more time.

Wonderful smoked meat and cigar box aromas. Flavors of dense black fruit with great mouthfeel and long finish.

Wonderful bottle of wine from Chile. Lots of fruit tannin and acid still abounds. Should be good for another 10 years. At least.
