Lush and juicy, with a great nose of cherries and berry fruit. Beautiful balance, with fairly soft tannins for a Cab of this quality, and I would probably drink this on its own or with some nice cheese. Very smooth, but has complex flavors and a long finish. Just delicious. Definitely give this one at least an hour in the decanter.

Flavor of ripped dark berry, flower, a hint of cassis. Constrained tannin and smooth after. Very fluty and not heavy. Can enjoy right after you opened the bottle.

Samtig weiche Tannine in Verbindung mit einer feinen Vanillenote lassen die fruchtigen Komponenten wunderschön zur Geltung kommen. Einer der besten Weine Chiles! Verpackt in einer luxuriösen 6er Holzkiste.

Farbe: dunkles, sattes Rot. Wunderschöne Fruchtaromen (schwarze Johannisbeeren, Brombeeren), zarte Schokoladennote und jugendliche Tannine, feinsüsser Abgang.

The fruit is darker with a quality nose of cedar, leather, espresso, and black currants. The wine's texture is supple and there is enough tannin to support 2-3 years of cellaring. This well-made Cabernet can be enjoyed through 2020.

Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby red color, the expression of cabernet sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. Lots of berries fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Wine Spectator: Very suave, with a velvety texture and fine-grained tannins that carry deceptively concentrated notes of black currant, warm fig sauce, espresso, maduro tobacco and black tea. Long and well-defined through the finish, with an ample reserve of fruit and minerality. Drink now through 2015. (5/31/09)
