    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a deep red ruby. On the nose, the exuberant fruit is emphasized with great personality and highlights of ripe cherries, plums, truffles, blackberries and liquorice followed by a surge of black pepper, bay leaf, cloves and nutmeg. The oak blends in harmoniously adding to the wine's complexity with aromas of vanilla, chocolate, coconut, graphite, tobacco, cinnamon and mocha. It possesses an interesting structure with balanced acidity, good volume and a persistent, soft and elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The bouquet of cassis, blackberry and controlled oak is welcoming, while the palate shows a spot of piercing acidity along with snappy black cherry, cassis, and light olive flavors. This is a quintessential Chilean Cab with a hint of herbal character but also bold color, power and very good fruit quality.

    Deep ruby. Musky, complex aromas of red berries, smoked meat, rose oil and cured tobacco. Dense and fleshy, displaying ripe red fruit flavors and an exotic note of candied flowers. More tangy on the finish, which shows a slight tart edge to its redcurrant and spice notes.

    I liked the 2009 Grande reserve and wanted to give this a try. I wouldn't touch this again...
