Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Medium-deep ruby colour with aromas of cassis, smoked meat, tilled earth, vanilla and dark chocolate. Dry with a generous fruit core and firm, wiry tannins. Medium-full bodied with a medium-long, poised finish. Give it 2-4 years in a cellar, or enjoy it tonight. My note: Unfairly great for the price! Luscious, full-bodied, juicy and textured. Fleshy blackberries and black plums. Perfect for first dates if you want them to go well and for anniversaries when you want to remember only the good times. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: slow-cooked roast beef and root vegetables, herbed beef stew, crown rib roast with stuffing and all the trimmings. Best Beef Wine

Mark Britton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This an excellent cab sauv from the Colchagua Valley in Chile. The tannins are well integrated with the black fruit. It needs a nice red meat pairing and I would recommend decanting for at least 30 mins.
