    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.

    April 4, 2017 - Still incredible, even better than the few bottles I opened early in its development

    February 25, 2017 - Round and rich and ready to go. Lots of sweet fruit. Good balance. Carries the alcohol well.

    December 30, 2016 - Bordeauxlike but still something different - but very good. Like a fine graves with a tuscan touch.
