Found on Wine.com - just a wonder! here are some notes from RP - 'The 2011 Vina Zaco changed labels and profile to a more modern style a few years ago and displays a darker shade of cherry color, ripe notes of red and black berries, flowers and a meaty palate where the wood is perfectly integrated with the fruit, which finally feels more classical than what the label makes you think. It is very good value. Drink 2014-2017...' Nose is a perfect blend of oak, earth, baking spices, vanilla and butterscotch. Medium dry and acidic. Big mouthful, easy, easy drinking. Seemed a perfect balance of berry/spice/earth/tannins/acidity...Long savory finish - just a steal at the less than $10 pricing.
