One of the things Chile does well is making under $20 Cabernets that deliver for the price point.  This is another one.  It was very tight on opening but with about an hour of air, it got where it was going.  Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is tight but then shows black cherries, spice and a slight roasted herb note.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this has a nice texture.  Black cherry fruit.  This drinks easy with no tannins.  Good balance.  Nice finish.  Drink over the next three to five years.  It drinks well on its own and will work with brisket or other fatty meats.
