N/ Purple and red fruits. Smoked game. Brick dust. Paprika. Cedar / cigar box. Forest floor. Bell peppers.
T/ Medium full mouth feel. Loaded with red, blue, and black fruit flavors.
These are well-balanced with wood and Earth notes.
Only detraction is a light bell pepper note that will likely resolve with more bottle rest time. Once/if it does this wine will easily ascend into “A” range.
Price $22 – $27

From the winery…
“Denomination of Origin (D.O.): Puente Alto, Maipo Valley.
Puente Alto Vineyard and Pirque Vineyard, Maipo Valley. Both vineyards are located close to the foothills of the Andes Mountains—Puente Alto is 650 m a.s.l. and Pirque is 570 m a.s.l.—and have alluvial soils that are poor in nutrients, rocky, and highly permeable due to the abundance of gravel in the subsoil.”
