This is the type of wine that helps drive Chile's reputation as the king of value Cabernet. It's rubbery and earthy at first, but it settles to show rich black fruit, sass and sauce, and firm but chewy tannins. Flavors of blackberry and spice are appealing, and the mouthfeel won't draw many complaints.
