This is a complex but approachable example of a fine Chilean red blend. Led by Cabernet Sauvignon, this six-grape combo smells lightly roasted, spicy and chocolaty, with olive and blackberry scents. A juicy, fresh, layered palate has both spine and cushion; forward berry and medicinal cherry flavors finish smooth and balanced, with dashes of oak, baking spices and herbs. Drink through 2022.
