Natalie's Score: 93/100

A rich, full-bodied red with a towering structure and good cellar potential. Built like a Bordeaux but with the power of Chilean fruit.

The 2008 vintage is a surprising balance between the fruit, fine tannins, and
concentration. More than opulent, this wine is elegant above all else, a characteristic
that recalls its origins and the characteristics of the terroir.
Bright and intense in color, expressive on the nose, fruity, ripe, and bearing notes
of spice that are typical of the terroir. Concentrated and elegant on the palate,
with tremendous balance, which ensures great aging potential.
