In the Glass: Opulent deep crimson red that coats the glass.
On the Nose: Rich scents of mint and red currants. Benefits from decanting one hour before consumption.
On the Palate: Complex flavors of plum and blackberries with a touch of oak and vanilla at the finish that develops slowly on the palate. Medium tannins and spiciness at the back of the tongue. Extremely well balanced wine.
Style: Big and bold
Comments: Terrific wine at a great price point. Much more complex and elegant than a typical merlot. From hand picked grapes from the Peumo vinyard in the Rapel Valley and aged for 18 months in french oak casks. Shows good aging potential over the next 3-5 years. I expect this wine to improve quite a bit with another 1-2 years in the bottle. Had this wine with New Year's dinner of roast duck and worked perfectly in this pairing.
