Tasted blind in a line up of mainly old Bordeaux. Light red in colour. On bouquet, quite pure and bright. Blackberry, raspberry, cedar, cassis, also some greenness (but not unpleasantly so, perhaps nettles). On palate, reasonably fruit forward and intense, with acids present but tannins largely integrated. Silky texture with good weight and finishes on a savoury, but slightly drying note. A Chilean wine from the Maipo Valley, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon. 91.
Complex and expressive bouquet with cassis and toasted oak. Juicy cassis, good acidity and pleasant oak in the taste. A hint of sweetness. The tannin is soft and ripe and still powerful. Perfect drinking moment with some promise for the future.
