    June 26, 2016 - OMG. This was my 5th of 6 bottles that I have drank over the past decade and this wine is singing! Copious aromas of dark fruits and a bit of chocolatey mocha. Perfectly balanced now. Lusciously rich and complex with silky tannins and a lingering finish that makes you keep wanting more. Each trip back to the glass delivers new layers of aromas and flavors. What a treat! Decant for 1-2 hours before enjoying with a hearty meal.

    June 19, 2016 - Enjoyed this bottle on Fathers Day '16

    Still full of fruit with the Bordeaux touch to it for this Puento Alto wine of Chile. Dark fruit on the nose, velvety with at least a 30 second finish. Drinkable now but good longevity left in this wine for the next 10 years. Luckily I have more bottles in storage!
