This mature blend of Cabernet and Carmenère shows classic Maipo characteristics on the nose and palate. It smells foresty and spicy, with cola, tobacco, olive and earthy, leathery berry aromas. Tastes rooty and like fruitcake, with coffee, spice and raisin flavors. Legitimately complex but leafy and earthy. Drink now through 2014.
