Tasty, jammy style, with lots of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, covered with sweet toast, vanilla bean and mocha notes. Thickly textured, but stays lively and fresh through the finish. Drink now through 2005. 2,000 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth
A surprisingly rich version from Maule, with delicious plum and blackberry fruit supported by tobacco leaf, tar and dark chocolate notes which all pump through the finish nicely. Drink now. 3,340 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth
Leaner style, this is shy at first, but crisp grass, mineral and lime flavors build nicely through the finish. Drink now. 7,400 cases made. From South Africa. —James Molesworth
