Even if this isn't the best Casa Real in recent years, it stands out from the crowd and doesn't have to work hard to do so. The nose is tight and clean, with leather, spice and cherry aromas. The palate is packed with cherry and cassis, and the finish is lively but balanced. Despite a down vintage, this is Chilean Cabernet at its finest. Imported by Vineyard Brands.
