I took Moxie and one of my sons to a Brazilian steak house recently. This was the featured wine, priced at $65 instead of the usual $120. In reality it retails for $30 or so dollars. I ordered it and did not regret my choice.
Iodine, black berries and orange peel nose really got me going. I was so engulfed in the nose of this wine that I kept sniffing, trying to coax more…. Blackberry creme pie meets chocolate dust and vanilla bean on the initial palate, exciting. Hefty yet refined tannins are on pointe and the finish is long and dry. The wine was perfectly paired with all the freshly grilled, highly salted, tender morsels of beef, lamb and pork. 92 points from me would equal what the pro’s averaged on this wine. A drinking window of 2015-2022 make it totally worth cellaring for a great accompaniment to steaks and stews. 5 stars from me for this Chilean stunner. Salut….
