My Rating 92 Points.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day, with this gorgeous 10 year old, Chilean Cabernet blend.
Very dark ruby in color, that doesn’t show age at all, with a dark purple rim.
Light nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, plums, smoke, vanilla, cloves, chocolates, black pepper and spices.
Full bodied and smooth with great legs and a nice mouth feel.
Bone dry on the palate with cherries, blackberries, oak, black currants, cedar, licorice, vanilla, tobacco, Coffee, dark chocolate, spices and black pepper.
Long finish with full, round, smooth tannins and a black licorice ending.
What a great Chilean blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Carmenere. Great by itself or with a big steak. Delicious, well balanced and enjoyable.
This came out of a collaboration between the Italian Marchesi Antinori and the Chilean Haras de Pirque. What a wonderful outcome.
Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
