    January 13, 2020 - Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim.

    On the nose, blueberries, black cherries, black plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, dark coffee and black pepper.

    Full-bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

    Dry on the palate with black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, leather, light bitter herbs, light earth, vinaigrette and peppercorn.

    Long finish with smooth and elegant tannins and tangy cherries.

    What a nice surprise. This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. Nicely aged with nice balance and complexity.

    Good right out of the bottle and better after 45 minutes of airtime in a decanter.

    This 12 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile is drinking extremely nicely now. Peaking now, with great complexity and a soft mouthfeel. Very tasty all by itself.

    This is a great example of an under $20 wine that becomes delicious with proper aging.

    I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

    100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

    14% alcohol by volume.

    94 points.

    $17 (Current vintage).

    December 17, 2014 - Première de trois bouteilles. Intéressant et plein de vigueur, mais je laisse vieillir les 2 autres pour voir son évolution.

    October 3, 2014 - Still drinking well. The tannins have not softened with age. Drink with a meal that can stand up to them.
