Tasting notes:Fragrant, ripe, wild berries and cherry complimented by coffee notes on the noseFull bodied and richly textured on the palateBeautiful layers of tea, wild berries, cedar, and chocolate on the finishSummary:This is an outstanding wine and I've been wanting to try it for a while. It's considered to be one of the great wines of Chile. I had the good forture of grabbing a bottle on closeout for $40, and at this price I'd buy a lot more. The problem is, the wine usually retails for $90.The 2004 is drinking incredibly well, probably at its peak. It has ripe fruit and lots of layers, all of which are beautifully integrated and harmonious. A real treat for sure.Pour this with good friends and enjoy the richness and length that will compliment a wide variety of fine dishes. Savor the moment, and raise a glass!--A Review from The Wine Cask Blog.
