Opaque ruby. Textbook ripe cabernet aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cherry and tobacco. Fleshy, expansive dark fruit flavors possess very good depth and offer suave oak spice and floral character. Fine-grained tannins give shape and grip to the long, smooth, gently gripping finish.
A postcard from the Alto Maipo, this cabernet is filled with menthol and cherry jam scents lifted by refreshing acidity. It has the gentle, gracious feel that distinguishes the top Maipo cabernets: Seductively spicy and relatively light in texture, it offers complexity while holding its freshness. For spring lamb.
Hails from Macul, so it exhibits some normal eucalyptus on the nose along with spice and pointed, slightly piercing berry aromas. The palate is chewy, sweet, modern and ripe, with chunky berry, herb, olive and particularly graphite flavors. Settles on big black fruit and depth. Outstanding Chilean Cabernet with individuality. Best from 2013–2016.
