This is an interesting six-grape blend that’s not like most other Chilean specimens. It starts with a leathery note as well as eucalyptus, licorice and lightly minty fruit aromas.

Toasty and solid on the nose, with hints of mineral, dark spice, black olive and cassis. It’s structured but a little rich and sticky, with sweet berry and cassis flavors along with brown sugar on the finish. A blend of six grapes that’s easygoing and generous. Drink now through 2013.
This blend of six grapes is led by Cabernet Sauvignon. On the bouquet, it’s dry and dusty, with tobacco, cherry and a hint of raisin. The palate feels a touch baked and/or cooked, while reedy, minty, lightly herbal flavors are offset by cassis and berry. Mild astringency defines the finish.
Herbal and scratchy up front, with spice, eucalyptus and raspberry aromas. The palate is concentrated and firm, with baked berry, olive and other warm, earthy flavors. Finishes toasty and tannic, with a chocolaty essence along with brown sugar. Made from Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot and Syrah in descending order.
