This has an aromatic lift with some oak spice and a notion of Maipo’s classic mint, earth tones to darker red fruit on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, this still has retained its vibrancy and freshness even with extended bottle age. Red fruit flavors are nuanced with a spice component while riper, round tannins gives this an appealing textural feel with adding a nice structural framework to the fruit. This has nice length and is in its sweet spot with several more years of great drinking in front of it. Matetic always makes impressive wines and this is a great illustration.

Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and red plum aromas are sharpened by a peppery note. At once juicy and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors that deepen with aeration. Spicy, focused and gently sweet on the finish, which lingers with gently building tannins and a suave floral quality. Drink 2017-2021.
