    May 9, 2021 - How this is a 2007 is beyond me. Deep, dark, thick fruit. Blackberry, rose petal. Still has firm tannins. Beautiful wine. Would love to find another and have it at the 20 year mark.

    December 30, 2020 - Rich spices an berries, dense on the palate. A great Chilean blend. Pleased to have waited several years

    May 4, 2020 - It's come around very nicely, well integrated with a very pleasant smoky wood component. Needs bottle aging to show its potential.

    October 12, 2019 - Clean bouquet Full bodied with acid minus, oak plus and ripe, and bright fruit. Medium to long length and pleasant finish.

    July 11, 2017 - Even better since last enjoying in 2011. More integrated, more balanced, though still a bold, oak ladened beast! Still needs long 2-3hr decant to reach potential. Bold, yet balanced overall. Cassis, coffee grounds, chocolate and mildly, sweet, oak spice. Reminiscent of numerous bold, heavily oaked, Napa Cabs. Teeth stainer. Still noticeably fine, dry tannins, though nothing a bite of thick steak won't overcome. Satisfying, if you are in the mood for a bold, oaky red wine.. I was.. and I'm happy. Drinking great now, though should handle 5 years without a problem, probably longer, if stored properly. Well made.
