A Chilean wine from the Viña Errázuriz who have been making wines for more than 130 years. With a fun label that looks like it is handwritten in beautiful cursive text this wine pours with a deep, almost opaque ruby/maroon color. It looks like liquid mahogany. The first aroma is of spicy, bitter, dark chocolate and black cherries that is so intoxicating it almost brought me to tears. I didn't want to taste it in case I did actually start crying. I took another smell, deeper this time and it brought memories of bonfires in England of smoky cedar wood with a hint of cassis and fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is smooth and biting at the same time. Tastes of dark chocolate covered cherries abound in this full of flavor wine. A finish that remains and tantalizes to the last taste. This is a true curl up on the sofa type of wine. I wouldn't pair it with anything. I would do these things... you, if you are lucky a loved one, the wine, a sofa, perhaps an open fire and some Adele playing in the background. A perfect evening.

Purpurrot. Schwarze Johannisbeeren, Holunder und Crème brûlée in der intensiven, fein balancierten Nase. Wuchtiger, aber von viel Eleganz geprägter Gaumen mit viel schwarzer Beerenfrucht, Edelholznoten und einer Spur Tabak, von herrlicher Fruchtsüsse geprägt, schönes Säure-Frucht-Spiel, angenehmer und anhaltender Abgang.

Leather, raisin, earth and lightly baked berry aromas precede a woody, vanilla-infused palate with blackberry and spicecake flavors. Balanced and lively on the tongue, with a dry, barrel-spiced finish. Solid and appealing, but a little oaky.

A step up is the purple-colored 2009 Carmenere Single Vineyard (Vinedos Max). Notions of sage, thyme, balsamic, and blueberry lead to a superficial but pleasant wine with ample savory fruit and moderate length. Drink it over the next 4–5 years.
