(2007 Vintage) Nose: Ripe freshy fruit and berries lead of this highly aromatic wine.
Later, the tobacco, coffee and chocolate comes through yet is well married with the vanilla.
Palate: Agreeable, mature tannins elegantly convey the best expressions of the Puente Alto vines. The pleasant, long finish displays great harmony and balance in this vintage.
