A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits an already complex, expressive nose of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, licorice, smoked meat, blueberry, and blackberry. Dense, rich, and plush on the palate.

The best estate fruit from vines planted in the 1990s within the Max V vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley was hand-picked, sorted and crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After 15-30 days of post-fermentation maceration, the wine aged for 12 months in French (65%) and American (35%) and oak barrels of which 30% were new.
