While time to drink is up, this wine is still quite alive, with a deep ruby color, medium to heavy body and aromas of pomegranate. After taste have chocolate and earth taste. We are pairing with spaghetti carbonara and did good, while not outstanding ( pasta requires more.Acidity) it is at best from half hour to 1.5 h after opening.After 2 h became soured , acid and alcoholic.
Deep purple color shows little sign of age. Nose -new world-fruit and spices, not much earthiness. Very smooth and fruity taste. If not over the hill a bit, certainly on top, but drinking very nice now.
After 4 hours of decanting, the initial funky menthol-ish, barnyard-ish smell gradually dissipated from this brick red, smooth textured, medium to full-bodied Chilean cabernet. The sweetish fruity berry flavors are well integrated with a very slight touch of oak. Although this wine has definitely past its prime, its still quite mellow and enjoyable drink.
