Intensely charred and rubbery, with peanutty aromas that also fold in fresh-laid road tar. Gotta say this is unusual for Maipo and Chilean Cabernet; it's herbal, with a green infiltration. Bouncy on the finish, with grabby tannins. It's almost there, but too many speed bumps don't allow for smooth driving.
