The name doesn’t imply Chile, but the wine is quite good. The nose is pure, earthy and mellow, with olive and berry fruit in good proportion. Tight in the mouth, but not hard, with cassis, plum and cola flavors. Lightly oaked and vibrant. Classic Chilean Cabernet at a fair price.
Chunky and pasty-smelling, with a thick set of berry aromas that rest heavily in the glass. Not very fruity but definitely herbal. Most difficult to deal with are the hard, fierce tannins that result in a gritty mouthfeel and bitterness on the finish. Surprising tough and tannic.
