Color: Deep red-violet. Aroma: Aromas of raspberry, cassis and blackberry are the first to slowly develop in the glass, and later give way to notes of spices, bitter chocolate and cedar. Palate: The mouth is well structured and complex, evoking fresh fruit on the palate. This is a wine of great character, purity and elegance.

Wine EnthusiastOne of Chile's best red blends is back with a vengeance. The nose is a wonderful mix of almond candy, fine leather, baked pastry, prune and licorice all bundled up in a comfortable blanket, while the palate is mouthfilling and loaded with cassis, coffee, herbs and pepper flavors. Excellent structure and depth, with power and balance. Drinkable now but ageable through 2014.

Wine SpectatorConcentrated but supple, with a core of black currant and warm fig flavors layered with cigar box, aged tobacco, plum sauce reduction, loam and coffee. The persistent finish shows latent richness. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenère. Best from 2009 through 2012. 2,500 cases made.
