(includes 10% merlot and 4% cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot): Vivid ruby. A heady, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, apricot, orange zest and violet, plus vanilla and mocha overtones. Pliant, appealingly sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors show very good depth and vivacity, with a bitter chocolate nuance appearing on the back half. Closes sweet and very long, with resonating spiciness and a touch of anise.
Even if this Cab shows eucalyptus on the nose along with asphalt and olive aromas, the bouquet is complex and true as far as high-end Chilean Cabs go. A saturated, syrupy body reflects a hot vintage, while baked flavors of earthy fruits, beef soup and chocolate qualify as stewy but tasty. A warm, flat finish says drink this Cabernet sooner rather than later. - M.S.
A mint overtone leads to a ripe palate of mulled plum and kirsch fruit, with loam and mocha notes filling the long, firmly tannic finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. –NW
