This Syrah-led blend (with Carignan) hails from old vineyards in Maule. Leather, rubber, compost and earthy cherry aromas set up a palate with laser-beam acidity and shearing crispness. Flavors of red fruits, spice and herbal notes finish oaky and a bit raw, but exceedingly fresh. Drink through 2018.
