(88% cabernet sauvignon, the rest merlot, carmenere and malbec): Bright ruby-red. Bright aromas of black cherry, cassis and licorice. Sweet and lush in the mouth, with a sexy exotic spice element lifting the powerful flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and cocoa powder. Creamy and very ripe but showing excellent energy for 2009. Impressively concentrated and long on the finish. A superb 2009.
