Big wine with classic Chilean notes. Black current, spicy chilli pepper, vanilla oak. Smooth body after an hour decant. Big mouth feel.

Blackcurrant and spices on the nose. Lots of ripe fruit with firm tannins and nice acidity. Very well balanced.

Medium-high intensity nose of earthy and savoury notes along with red & black fruits, graphite, mint and cassis which all make an appearance on the palate. It's full-bodied with big tannins, mouth-watering acids and long finishing. Tasted Oct/2015. Score: 88+ pts
