This is one delicious Chilean wine, perhaps the most delicious Chilean red made in a fresh, drink-it-now style that we have yet to taste. A blend of Cabernet, Carmenere, Merlot, Cinsault, Carignane, and Pais (Mission), the wine shows beautiful aromatics: spicy, red fruited, dried cranberry/dried cherry mixed with a hint of cured meat. On the palate the wine is fresh and distinctive, reminiscent of a southern French vin naturel. The vines here are very old and dry farmed (the Maule Valley is perhaps the only place in Chile where irrigation is not necessary). Winemaking is simple: native yeast, whole cluster fermentations with carbonic maceration, and aging in used French oak barrels.
