Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has a lot of Christmas spices on it with a bit of black cherry fruit. Medium bodied. On the palate, there are firm tannins. Solid black cherry fruit. This got better with a bit of air. Nice balance. Another very good un der $20 value wine from Chile. Drink over the next five years. This drinks well on its own and would work nice with a burger or ribs off the grill.
