Smoky and smooth up front, with bacon, rubber and pure black-fruit aromas. The palate is equally pure and deep, with lush blackberry, cassis, tannins and proper balance. Spicy and tasting of licorice on the finish, with an overall appeal that justifies its price. Excellent Chilean Cabernet that can compete with Napa and elsewhere. Drink now through 2015.
