A tough gritty nose is not the most welcoming, while this holds onto that hardness on the palate, which is raw in feel and stylistically more drawn back than most high-end Chilean Cabernets. This tastes savory, a touch leafy and short on ripe fruit. Overall, it's a dry Maipo red with oak character and toughness. Drink through 2028.
