Beautiful flavor and color. Much higher percentage of Cabernet which is evident.

My "Best of Show" at James Suckling Great Wines of the Andes tasting in San Francisco. I can see why he gave it 100 points and why there was an enormously long line to taste it.

1+hr decant. Deep, dark purple color. Complex nose of dark fruit and spices. Absolutely massive wine! Requires small pours and sips. Concentrated dark fruit with slight hints of vanilla and tons of spices and herbs on the palate. Complex but varies between a velvet and spicy texture. Decent finish. Definite aging potential. I enjoyed it but the wife was so so.

Bold, beautiful and enjoyable. First wine that I used my new Coravin wine system! Worked perfectly. Very excited! Opened again 7 weeks later and still tasted as if I had just opened it!!

A bit tannic and not as much depth as hoped for.
