2004 Vina Chocalan Gran Reserva
"This winery has produced several notable red wines that are listed on the Value Chart. The flagship 2004 Gran Reserva, a Bordeaux-inspired blend, is opaque purple-colored. It offers a dramatic perfume of smoke, toast, leather, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a fat, sweet, ripe wine with layers of spicy flavors. There is plenty of ripe tannin under all the baby fat indicating that this hedonistic, lengthy effort should continue to evolve for another 3-4 years and drink well through 2027."
