Sweet and smoky to start with, and with its mild roasted nose it draws you in. The palate is big, boisterous and generous, but also under control as it delivers pure boysenberry, blackberry and chocolate flavors. Toasty and long, and impressive for an $11 wine.

Lots of dark juicy plum, blackberry and cherry fruit is layered with sweet toast and hints of tobacco, vanilla and mineral on the finish. Very tasty. Drink now through 2008.

Solid, showing ripe plum and blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and toast notes, with a nice fresh finish. Drink now.

This has a nicely polished feel, with tasty plum and tobacco notes laced with a hint of cocoa. Not big, but shows good length and freshness. Drink now.

Intensely colored red with a full body and chewy mouthfeel. Black fruits, toffee and toasted oak marry well on the palate. A lot of wine for the price range, with more complexity than most. Elegant enough to serve with grilled tuna or vegetable lasagna.

Ripe, dark, toasty and true, with herbal blackberry aromas. The palate feel is balanced and driving, while the flavors are properly roasted and warm, with black plum and blackberry fruit leading the charge. Sweet and lasting on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impact. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers. This wine shows a gorgeous deep ruby red, with light notes of cherries that combine elegantly with a spicy touch of black pepper which adds pleasing aromatic complexity. On the palate the tannins are firm and acidity bright, resulting in a fresh and juicy wine with a very good finish. A brilliant red to share over dinner, particularly wonderful with beef bourguignonne, moussaka or vegetable terrine.
