From Jacques and Francois Lurton.
Very dark purple.
Lovely nose, sweet, spicy and chocolate.
Silky mouthfeel, chocolate, dusty cherry and tangy raspberry fruit, fairly thick, peppery, red licorice, showing a bit of roughness toward the end.
A very rich, but restrained wine, powerful and complex but not flashy.
Lacking, thank goodness, the green, drying woodiness I so often associate with economical Chilean Cabs.
A big and very complex wine for the incredible price of $11.95 Canadian.
