This six-grape blend is as aromatic as one might expect from Carménère, PV, Merlot, Syrah and Cabs Franc and Sauvignon. There is much dark fruit on the nose, along with cigar box, leather, cedar and licorice. The palate is bold, too, with a complex flavor profile and tannins which are useful but not overpowering.

Intriguing nose. Forest underbrush, almost pine sap, red berries. Smooth tannins, followed by a touch of sweet fruit on the finish. Nice quality for price.

Soft, smooth and warm. There is some dark berry fruit in this medium to full bodied wine. It finishes dry with good length but there isn't much to justify the $20 price tag or the 93 point score given by James Suckling. 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carmenere, 25% Syrah, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Nice Chilean red blend. 14.5%. Med high tannins very dry - nice fruit / spice.

Fine. Not as full bodied as I'd like but maybe it needs more time. I guess it drinks ok. Not my favorite. I think there's better in the $10-15 at Costco market.

Good. I don't know about 93 points though. Kind of a fluctuating character... not a cohesive blend. It doesn't quite know what it wants to be.
