Foot of the Andes on banks of Maipo River, 650 meters above sea level, vineyard dates back to mid-19th century, when first pre-phylloxera French varieties were brought to Chile, deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits & mineral notes, a blend of 92% Cab Sauv & 8% Cab Franc, aged for 15 month in French oak (65% new). On the palate flavors cherry & blackberry with powerful tannins, long finish, very tight, ending with mineral and tobacco notes. Also tried a year ago, still needs time. Tasting Sample!

Nice soft boot leather nose. Rich, black fruits and tar fruit. Smooth, dry, leather finish. Nicely balanced

Something a bit special more bold bigger and stickier than a Bordeaux but not as loud as Aus or USA.
