Natalie's Score: 89/100Vintages Wine Panel: This new project for the Undurraga family has seen them focus their efforts considerably in order to achieve excellence - small operation, small yields, limited quantities. A tremendously deep ruby in the glass, this is alive with aromas of smoke, black cherry, vanilla and dark chocolate. Dry and full bodied, it is very well structured with firm tannins and a great core of acidity. Ripe and generous fruit throughout. Delicious. Enjoy this tonight, or cellar for 5+ years. My note: A rugged, robust, cedary cab with mouth-watering aromas of wild blackberries. Very clean with a nice finish. Great balance. Decant 2 hours.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: rare steak.

Good wine with dinner tenderloin with bourbon glaze. Not the best pairing ever.
|Lee Newby, AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:|
rape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Malbec 13%, Carmenere 2%.
Very good wine with medium plus intensity of ripe dark fruit and a mixed spice note. The medium tannins are grippy and balance the medium acidity and 14.5% alc. The wine finishes with a sweet medium length. Drink now and for 6-7 years.
