    Winemaker's Notes:

    Meet the twins: a masterstroke of varietal blending from Chile's winemaking legend, Aurelio Montes. On their own, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon shine, but when paired up, these two classic varieties complement each other perfectly. It's a sensational double bill: wonderful richness, structure and fruit from the Cabernet, with smooth, velvety texture from the Malbec. These varieties add up to a wine that's greater than the sum of its parts, while the oak aging contributes with subtle notes of vanilla and liqueur, and its soft tannins provide an especially elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This 50% Malbec, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (hence, the "twins") is a magnificent blackberry, licorice and spiced specimen of tightly wound Cab and velvet-gloved Malbec. The bodies are textured and in motion, empowered by grace and elegance.

    Rich taste but not too heavy. No bad after taste. Would buy again.

    Eh... was so-so. Not saying it was terrible, but have had better. Probably will not order again. Will look on...

    Love that wine (3/5/2014)
    I do not open my wines until they have rested at least 30 days. Many of the negative commentaries are mellowed after that time. Still, nothing amazing and there are better wines.

    Pretty good for an 8$ bottle of juice. Usually with a cheaper wine we tend to notice a harsher alcohol ending. Not so with this one. The initial smell was a bit strong but wasn't part of the flavor. Will buy again.
