Cassis and black currant play off oak, peppercorn and green bell pepper in this spicy wine that also exhibits soft tannins and a long intense, yet smooth finish. Pair with hearty stews, chili or a good NY strip steak with sauteed onions and wild mushrooms. The spice in this wine need a beef dish to expose its fruit flavors.

Aromen: Distinguirtes Bukett von kleinen, dunklen Früchten, hauptsächlich Cassis, etwas Pfeffer, feiner Rauchton. Gaumen: Konzentriert, muskulös, sortentypisch fleischig, mundfüllend, mit reifen und weichen Gerbstoffen, lang anhaltend

Robert Parker 90 Points This is a state of the art operation situated in the premium red grape growing area of Alto Maipo and this is Vina Perez Cruz' flagship wine. No expense is spared! The yields are a mind boggling 18 hectolitres per hectare (1st Growth Claret is probably nearer 30 to 40!) This outstanding red wine was naturally fined and stabilised in barrels followed by light filtration. Grapes : 40% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carmenere Region : Chile / Alto Maipo Taste : Typical Alto Maipo nose of Blackcurrants,eucalyptus,and overripe mango. Massive but restrained palate .The flavour goes on forever. Serve : Ideal with Sunday Roasts and smooth red meats ABV : 14.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
