2015 vintage. Grippy and gritty tannins. Blackberry, tree bark, currant, elderberry, black plum, clove, cassia, cedar. A bit of a baked quality to the fruit, but doesn't seem overipe or candied.

A deep red color with dark purple hints invites you to fresh red fruit aromas such as plums and cherries and delicate notes of sweet spices. An elegant sent.

In mouth, a concentrated body with balance and length provides a good tannic structure and round mid, persistent palate.

Excellent Chilean wine...

This almost tastes fortified like somebody added a little Thunderbird for good measure. Super jammy but not my jam.

Yup there’s that green bell pepper. Big tannins. I mean...I don’t hate it, but it’s not knocking my socks off. A lot more vegetable quality on this so people use to California style Cabernet probably will not enjoy this.

A medium bodied Cabernet where the tannins hit on the finish.

Not my favorite. Not enough fruit flavor...a bit dull.

Robust berry juicy chocolate slightly heavy tannins could use a little note aging or pair with fatty steak
