#4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2065
With a great nose of currant confiture and cocoa powder, this full-scale Cabernet sports dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit layered with loam, cedar, tobacco, mineral and coffee. Long and authoritative finish just sails on thanks to rather regal tannins.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon has a spicy perfume of toasty oak, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. It has lots of extraction in its layered, structured personality and should evolve for another 6-8 years.
Hard to believe that this Chilean icon is now in its 17th year. We recall back in the early ’90s when it was just getting going at well under $20 a bottle. With this wine look for potent, almost buttery oak propping up ripe berry fruit. In the folds are notes of tobacco, earth, mineral and mushroom. Tannic on the tail, with some overt wood that needs to find its place. Hold of at least a year.
