A red blend that shows the spirit and history of Itata – Chile’s oldest winemaking region.
Inviting on the nose with notes of ripe red fruit, blackberry, blueberry, and a hint of spice. It hits the palate with incredible balance that lasts through its long finish. It has fruit at the core with an acidity from the Carignan that lifts the wine on the back palate.
Pair with cherry-braised short ribs, barbequed flank steak, or grilled portobella mushrooms.
TOP 100 BEST BUYS OF THE YEAR . Felipe Garcia makes this wine from two vineyards. One is young-vine syrah; the other is carignan, grenache, mourvedre and petit verdot grafted onto the 120-year-old roots of país vines. He ages it in old neutral-oak casks for 18 months, and there’s no indication of wood in the wine; there’s just fragrant and delicious fruit, along with chewy, savory tannins. It’s a mood-changing wine, and if you’ve ever spent time in Chile, or in its much more highly populated corollary, the California coast, it’s sure to make you happy.Wine & Spirits October 2019
It has a fantastic and lively palate with very fine tannins and bright freshness. I'm sure this is going to be a monumental bottle of Bravado that Geddy Lee would be proud of.The Wine Advocate October 2018
