At two-thirds Cabernet, 20% Merlot and 15% Carmenère, this French oak-aged beauty features earth, rose petals and some bread dough on its bouquet. The wine represents the top of the line for the boutique Santa Laura winery, and it competes favorably with the best Chile has to offer, but at a fraction of the price. It's layered, creamy and large, with tannins that are as soft as silk.
