"This grows at a north-facing amphitheater above the Maipo River, where cold air follows the river's path down from the Andes. It's a seductive cabernet with cool-climate aromas-herbal notes, red fruits and a bit of menthol as background. The texture rolls across the palate, irresistibly smooth. A great Maipo cabernet." (06/09)
