Cocoa powdered blackberries.

This wine evolves, as a good wine should, with every sample. This vintage worked incredibly well with the ripeness of the fruit, and the craftpersonship of the juice.

Dark chocolate walks hand in hand with touches of saline, green pepper stalk, and that incredible terroir that only Chile knows. And the cost? Appropriate for those who make quality wines in multiple tiers.

At $6.99 (CostCo) you are unlikely to find this much value in a Cabernet anywhere - pleasant fruit and nicely balanced oak & tannin. Good everyday steak wine

The nose is bizarre. Not necessarily unpleasant but can’t quite place what’s going on. Almost graphite / metal on the nose with some tar. The nose doesn’t carry though to the palate which has notes of dark ripe but not jammy berries and some vanilla. Tannins are relatively evolved and smooth. Beyond the nose, relatively easy drinking without being smooth, vanilla milkshake-esque
