Touches of green bell pepper on the nose, offset with brighter fruitier red cherry and strawberry elements on the palate. Good, crackling structure, and clear clean fruit expression, this is a heck of a lot of full-bodied red wine at its price. I would drink this in a heartbeat.

I love this wine. The easiest way to think about this is like a Chilean Cotes-du-Rhone. But it is so much more than that. This is Chilean. It is not trying to be anything else. Functionally at the dinner table it is a CdR. In every other imaginable way, it is Chilean. Nowhere else in the world would you find these grapes blended together. Nowhere else would it make sense to do so. The Carignan, Pais and Carmenere all bring something to the party and that they all work really well together. The later brings structure while both of the former brighten, round the mid palate, soften the green component of Carmenere and add a delicate spice. Bright fruit, soft tannins and spice. The aromas and flavors are brighter, deeper, more complex and, importantly, different than the French wine that I have been comparing it to. This is a delicious wine that is different yet familiar and though modestly priced 30 minutes in a decanter makes this blossom.
