Natalie's Score: 90/100

Gorgeous long layers of blackcurrant and blackberry flavor: fleshy, full-bodied goodness. A saucy slap of licorice on the finish. Yum!

Cd rated this wine as 94/100
Rapel Valley. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Carménère, 5% Sangiovesse, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Syrah. Aged 12 to 15 months, 100% en barriques de chêne francais (30% first passage, 40% 2nd passage & 30% third passage. Winter and Spring conditions were normal. Budding was slow and homogeneous, allowing for proper ripeness to occur. The end of the season was warm and dry, marked by an increase in the temperatures in the middle of March which reached 36°C - 38°C ( 97°F to 100°F). These excellent weather conditions allowed us to harvest later than previous years. The wines have a fantastic tannic concentration, a deep color, a good acidity and a great balance.

Beautiful colour, with hints of deep ruby. The nose is complex with notes of smoke, spice, and baked red currant. In the mouth, the wine is meaty and well structured, with intense fruit flavours, elegant hints of minerals with a touch of freshness. Distinctively elegant and easy to drink now, with great bottle aging potential.
