Facundo Red Blend 2011 (4.3/5)
Notes: It appears deep red purple with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering med+ intensity of brambles/blackberries in the way the chileans do. Vanilla and cedar, sweet spices and smoky notes from oak, well integrated. On the palate is dry, with balanced med/med+ acidity, med+ tannins, med+ alcohol, medium+ body with very good concentration and grip on the mid palate. Med+ finish. Definitely poised and elegant, not jammy neither hot.
Very Good quality, Drink Now but will evolve for more than a decade, High Price. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Petit Verdot, Maule and Itata valleys, Chile.
