This is very interesting. The funk and barnyard on the nose scream of left bank Bordeaux. Much of the same in the mouth. A very elegant expression of funky blackberry. This can def be confused for a medoc.

Like a genie out of the lamp, this wine offers effusive aromas of pine and eucalyptus. The tannins are a bit coarse but overall this wine delivers a solid experience at an affordable price.

Wow! So much eucalyptus on the nose it isn't even funny. Spice, a dash of tobacco, chocolate and lush lush dark fruit. The palate and mouth feel are good, but this is a Cab that thrives on its aromatics.

Maipo valley cab. Dried herbs are huge on the nose as well as mineral rock. More of a food wine but good!

Big, voluptuous wine with a velvety texture and long finish. Plenty of dark fruits with perhaps a touch too much oak present on the palate. Good food wine.
