Casa Silva has entered the Super Chilean sweepstakes with this Cabernet/Merlot/Carmenère blend—and the winery scores some early points. From a fine vintage, this wine is minty, chocolaty and full of red raspberry fruit. Some airing reveals graham cracker, caramel andhidden fruit. It's definitely a big-time, well-made wine that reflects serious effort. And it's ageworthy, up to about five years. Cellar Selection.
