The first thing you take from this wine is that it has a strong herbal/green element to the nose. Now that could be Chilean Merlot in its most natural form or it could indicate some ripeness issues. Regardless, the wine shows a full body and power but also olive flavors and rock-hard tannins. Imported by Excelsior Wine & Spirits.
