Deep and full... long finish. Well integrated flavours and superbly crafted and balanced.... must pair with filet mignon bordelaise... ready but could keep another 5-7 years I believe

Beautiful work here. Merlot à la bordelaise. Ready now and may have 2-3 years of complexification but no more

will not revisit. Muted fruit on an otherwise technically well made wine. Just lacked any fruit layers.

Very very well done for the price. Reminds me of more expensive cabs from Cali. Not much typical barnyard nose as many Chileans show. Only with regards to length I fell that it’s quite long as opposed to some other reviews. Definitely will repurchase!!

Done finiro. Too old

Decent at best. Not a good value though. Anyone giving this 100!!! Is either a dummy or works for the company. Get real please .. at 18$ in Canada you can get 5000 better wines. Commercial chug.

Very refined. In peak of drinking window. Watch out for heavy sediment. Perfectly balanced on all fronts. Reminds me of a left bank Graves or Margaux. Although it is 100% cab

A Pinot noir that works for me. Deep and surprisingly rich. Judicial use of barrel ageing. Great sipping and work with a huge rage of food. From salmon or tuna to r-bone off the grill. Definitely will purchase again.

This is at maturity drink in 2017... superb execution of Bordeaux outside of France. Left bank style as it's Cabernet Sauvignon lead
It needs to be upright for 2 days and decanted as it is well aged

Spectacular execution on extraction of the grapes... Nice Bodelais blend far away from France but yet reminds me of powerful Graves. This one is just a baby and will soften over the next 5 to 15 years... Do not rush it if you have only one bottle. HOLD
