Intense berry and spice aromas convey a sense of purity that's a bit generic. Although 2011 was a cool year by Chilean standards, this Carmenère-led blend is plump and voluminous in the mouth, but soft in the middle. Flavors of oaky cassis and herbs finish minty, green and chocolaty, with fresh acidity. Drink through 2018.
