Nice cab, maybe a bit overpriced at $18. Oak, blackberry, firm tannins provide a smooth finish with a bit of eucalyptus. A little anise, vanilla, and bitter herbs in the background (made me think of Zwack Unicum). Maybe needs more time in the bottle. I would score it 88/100.

Plummy and pleasantly tart, with a nice balance and a clean finish of cherry and spice. Drink now.

An expressive red of sweet cherry and blackberry flavors with accents of chocolate and toast. The tannins are light but firm, the acidity crisp, the balance impeccable. A vivid wine that brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2003.

This ripe, rich red from Chile marries concentrated flavors with voluptuous texture. It delivers plum, prune, dark chocolate and cola flavors, with ripe, full tannins and a clean, sweet finish. Drink now through 2004.

Aromas of earth, bacon fat and toasty oak lead the wine toward a snappy, young palate that pours on the red fruit, spice and tannins. The finish, however, is a bit more complex, as vanilla cookies and cocoa do an attractive little dance.

The grapey, high-toned scent lends an Italianate character, while the smooth and dark-toned fruit makes this a wine to pour with sausage and pasta.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this excellent wine are sourced from Santa Cruz (Colchagua), from the now famous “La Finca de Apalta” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile. The wine is a deep ruby red colour, and the expression of Cabernet Sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. There are lots of berries, fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins are evident. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.
