A Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with 23% Carménère, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot from Puente Alto, Maipo that spent 19 months in French barrels. Reflecting a warm, dry year, the nose presents notes of black currant and raspberry jam, black tea leaves and sweet spices with a touch of kirsch. Gentle on the palate with firm, pleasant tannins, a loose structure, bold flavor and intriguing expression. A hint of menthol makes itself felt at the back of the mouth.

First sip was a slap in the face and a kick you know where at the same time. After a triple decant and some serious glass time it calmed down significantly. Can’t wait to try it again after several more years.

Blackberry, black cherry, tobacco on the nose. Very dark ruby/almost black color. Graphite, black fruit. Drinking well. Long finish, heavy tannins. Will do well to have more time in cellar.
