Smells almost as much like a pizza as wine with its herbal notes of basil, fresh tomato and pepper. Along with those saucy aromas come berry and plum fruit; but again, any fruit on the nose or palate is mixed with a strong dose of herbal essence. Soft and chewy in terms of feel. Standard Chilean Merlot.
