Smoky and penetrating aromas include cherry, cassis, olive and spicy tobacco. The palate is juicy and racy to the point of aggressive, while the flavor mix of herbs, berry, tobacco, mint and plum screams out Maipo Cab. Finishes scratchy and a little hot, with bitter chocolate as the lasting flavor.
