Inky black with long legs. Aromas of blackberries, cherries and licorice. Dry and acidic with a firm grippy finish. Will go great with red meat.

The best wine of the night came as a magnum. Dark and inky with clear cab character and probably some Carmenere in there as well, being that it was from Chile.

Too ripe, sweet & oaky for me. Good tannic backbone, just too ripe.

For its age, it works. Bit definitely past prime. Impressive a value wine is still ok to drink at 13 years old.

Tasted green to me and had a bit of spice. Green pepper, jalapeño flavors. Didn’t enjoy

Currants, blueberries, black tea, tobacco and an incredible smokey finish.. Balanced, complex and a great value.
