YES ! Finally after some time, a País that is not Brett drenched.

Chilled is best for this wine, cranberry, bacon fat, cherry, a touch of that skin contact tannin.

Smooth and right on time for a warm day working the garden.
This is delicious and worth seeking out.

Funky and fruity, pleasingly chewy tannins, perfect with a chill.

You need to know the story behind this wine! Marcel is a real crack! Ancestral wines, no sulfits, no chemist treatment!

Brilliant pale ruby; medium plus intensity aromas of red plum, ripe blackberry, ripe raspberry, red and black cherry, bramble, subtle earth; dry, high acid, medium minus tannins, medium alcohol, medium minus body, medium plus intensity flavors consistent with aromas; very bright and surprisingly complex and concentrated, a good food wine, very good

2015 vintage claims 80% Paid and 20% Carignan on front label.
Pours fairly pale, gains color with air. Some, slightly flabby mulberry fruit. Slightly distracting CO2 on the palate, which dissipated somewhat with aeration but never went away. The CO2 lent freshness to the plane but obscured most of the in mouth aromas.
This wine was a perfect example of wait staff, bartenders especially needing a bit of training. My bartender claimed not to have tasted it, on a list that only offers 4 or 5 feeds BTG. He didn't know it was a natural wine or any history about the Renaissance of pais in Chile.
