    July 27, 2017 - Drinking beautifully, with charm, depth, and complexity. Lovely. Drink now and over the next 5 or 10 years.

    April 12, 2017 - Intressant mörkt röd
    I näsan kompakt doft av mörka röda bär och läder
    I munnen, mörka bär fruktkompott, läder aningen rökighet/tobak och cederträ, tydliga tanniner

    April 5, 2017 - From 750ml, decanted for 1 hour and consumed over 2 hours. Well cellared, perfect cork. Bar-none, the greatest Chilean wine I've ever tasted. Would be a great ringer for classified Bordeaux in a blind tasting. Deep nose of dark fruit and earth, full-bodied and balanced with a finish lasting 30 seconds. Pleasantly surprised that Cab Sauvignon can achieve this level of depth and complexity in the Southern Hemisphere. Definitely a cousin of Mouton and can highly recommend.
