A big bowl of fruit. Excellent wine but it does need 2 hours to come out of it's shell

Big and chewy just the way we like them. Great flavors out of this wine. Do not serve to the Merlot fans in your group and save it for yourself.

Tasted this virtually blind, knowing nothing about it and loved it. It's a very well crafted wine with both weight and delicacy. Ready to drink.

This is an excellent representation of the level of wines coning from Chile. Once this wine opens up tobacco and cherry dominate. It will benefit from some decanting.
