    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Inky and black purple-red.

    Nose: Expressive notes from Alto de Cachapoal, beginning with white and black pepper, rich meatiness and black and red fruit.

    Mouth: Round and pleasant attack with rich and velvety tannins that fill the mid palate and leave a long and pleasant sensation. Some elegant oak touches come later at the finish. Very pleasant and balanced wine.

    Food Pairing: enjoy with spiced meats and also stews, beef, lamb, game or boar. decant and serve at 18°C.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A big, broad-shouldered wine, with dark plum, blueberry, fig and warm cocoa notes that manage to stay fresh and driven through the long, velvety finish. Drink now through 2011. 2,000 cases made.

    Deep ruby. A complex, smoky bouquet exudes blackberry, cherry compote, cola and vanilla. Lush and creamy, with open-knit dark fruit flavors that show a slightly roasted quality. The cola note resonates on a long, smooth, gently spicy finish. This is a new release and it is ready to drink.
