This is a joint project with Baron Philippe Rothschild and Conch y Toro.  It is one of the top reds made in Chile although not technically a  Cabernet with  66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carménère, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has cassis, spice, black cherries and cigar box.  Full bodied with a really lovely texture.  medium tannins.  On the palate, more black cherries, but some cassis with an underlying spiciness.  A bit of rosemary at the finish.  This is drinking well but may yet improve.  Drink over the next 12 to 15 years.  Wile it drinks great on its own, it will work better with food.  This would be a nice wine to pair with a steak.
