Full bodied, dark red fruits. Smooth, without being over oaked.

I’m a real fan of @vik_wine since trying the 2011 so have been keen to try the 2012 @ £100 & it sure is another winner from 🇨🇱 Drinking superb now & will improve 👍 If you like a big bold but well balanced wine you will love this 😉

📍 Vina VIK 2012

🏵 95-96 points (I’m bemused why pro critics say 91-92 🤔 flopdoodles)

💥 14% ABV

🍇 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carménère, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot & 2% Syrah

🍷 Opaque deep blackened ruby

👃 A heady nose of rich ripe blackcurrant, damson plum & blueberry bathed in cocoa w/ sweet date jam, minerals, soggy earth, cracked pencil, vanilla, raspberry, black cherry, violet, soft oak & balsamic

👄 Med+ bodied rich creamy opulent blackcurrant jam, raspberry compote & cocoa cream w/ balsamic, minerals, black cherry & spiced blackberry

🎯 Long explosion of plump bursting dark fruits w/ a raspberry, big bold blueberry & cocoa mineral slap staining your teeth purple 😈

💭 If the 2013 of this wine is at the level Sena 13 was at it could be an epic buy on release as it will be stratoswinic 😍
