Chile is an amazing source of excellent value wines, even at premium quality levels. This wine has a distinctive stalky-green aroma which pays tribute to Chile and the green bell pepper aroma associated with Cabernet Sauvignon.
In addition, however, I was surprised by this wine, which has very ripe fruit and a gamey cured meat aroma, with dense wood smoke.
A real food wine; decant and pair with steak, venison and oxtail soup.
Big boy wine on a budget!
