Like its little brother Calvulcura, this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with Merlot. It's a big boy with stewed berries, prune and licorice on the bouquet. Below that heavy nose is a palate that's sweet and ripe, and arguably too much so. If chocolate, richness and heft are your thing, this is a winner; purists, however, may wish for more tannin, structure and nuance.
