Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - A burst of jammy fruit comes through on the nose, backed by a whisper of toasted coconut. The fruity character carries on through to the palate, laced with hints of oak spice and a whiff of vanilla on the finish. (Jul 2015)
From Chile, a sweeter Cabernet that goes down easy with a smooth finish. Ruby red with violet undertones and luscious blackberry and raspberry jam flavors. Just a hint of spice. Let it open up for half an hour, then serve with robust flavors like red meat, grilled veggies or pasta.
