"Deep ruby. Ripe black and blue fruit and licorice pastille aromas are brightened and given a spicy edge by a hint of cracked pepper. Supple and sweet on the palate, offering warm blueberry and cherry cola flavors and a touch of mocha. In a plush, open-knit style, closing on a gently tannic note with good breadth and fruity persistence." (VM)

"Aromas of blackberry, iron and spice. Mushroom too. Full-bodied, juicy and rich with a long finish. Soft and flavorful. Drink or hold." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Located in the Maipo Valley, the most traditional and prestigious valley in Chile for the premium red wines production. A 2.700 hectares property, with only 611 planted with vineyards. Mediterranean Climate with a warm, dry growing season, allowing for wines with big body, mature tannins and medium acidity. Volcanic origin and medium depth soils with mainly angular stones.

This beautiful wine has aroma's of ripe fruit with fresh and spicy notes. The annins are soft and round with a mineral component due to the mediterranean macroclimate.

This full-flavored, fruit-forward and semi tannic goes well with grilled, roasted or braised red meats as such beef, duck, lamb, etc and some veggies as mushrooms, squash.
