Like picking up a cute Chilean Chihuahua & finding you have a German Shepard on hand: on opening all disjointed & astringent, like many a 14$ wine is. But behold, several minutes later in glass & the pedigree begins to show: a firm light-medium body, medium + acidity, a tannic structure- think Etna, but meaner (the Shepard)-gorgeous black & dark red fruits, with that volcanic mineral undertow. From old, ungrafted Pais vines. Like really old, pre- phylloxera. A little chill works here too. Pais? Chile? Not your cute pop ‘n pour, just give it that mini decant & ye shall see the light.
