On the nose, this Cabernet-led blend deals telltale Chilean aromas of herbs, pepper, spice, berry, tomato and forest floor. Derivative of a cool year, the palate feels tight, with snapping acidity. Hard-hitting acid-driven flavors of spiced berry and black currant finish dark, toasty and oaky, but pulling. Drink through 2025.
