At the winery in Santiago, Chile..

Nose of light green pep, mint.
Heavy bodied, with an amazingly smooth flavours. Black fruits, currant, tarragon, anise. Beautiful tanning acid blend, 2 minutes later, the finish is still working. Wow.

Deep aromas, smooth mouthfeel and long finish. Chile does Cab right.

Too musty and earthy, even after 2 days breathing. This is a 2006 drunk in 2019, and perhaps it wasn’t stored properly.

Cousiño Macul’s Premium wine, intense black currant notes, chocolate and mint with a vanilla and slightly bitter tobacco finish with some oaky notes. This is a big wine, better decanted and needs some food to compliment it. Modern new world wine, but after over a decade in bottle quite balanced and good to drink now.
