"Outstanding value here." ~ Antonio Galloni's VinousAntonio Galloni's Vinous: "Ruby-red. Smoky cassis, dried cherry and licorice aromas show very good clarity and sexy Indian spice and pipe tobacco flourishes. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense dark berry and cherry compote flavors and a strong suggestion of allspice. Silky, seamless and nicely concentrated on the finish, which features harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness. Outstanding value here." Jun 2015
Winery: "Elegant Macul (zone where the grapes are grown, very close to Cousino Macul, the best region for Cabernet Sauvignon in Chile, according to Luiz Gutierrez of Parker's Wine Advocate) nose that combines fresh red fruit, cassis, dried herbs, and red pepper. The palate is complete with smooth tannins and loads of red fruit. It is a great wine to pair with a hangar steak, roasted duck, or a juicy cheeseburger.
Pair with traditional red-wine-friendly foods like hamburgers, steak, ribs, pizza, and grilled or roasted chicken."
