Given the pricing of Chilean Cabernet, this one is of questionable value. The nose is pickled and roasted at first but settles with time. Not bad in terms of mouthfeel, but the wines's raisin, pickle and roasted berry flavors don't really mesh, and overall it lacks a middle layer and dynamism on the finish.
