James Suckling Review
Rated 93
A harmonious array of both red and black fruit with dark olives, cocoa and a hint of black beans and cedar. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with lots of fine-grained, supportive tannins. A blend of 85% of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc from Alto Jahuel and 15% carmenere from Apalta. 50% new oak and 50% second-use oak. Excellent effort from the hot and dry 2020. Still vibrant and juicy. Drink or hold.
