93 pts Tim Aitkin

Chakana's red blend combines Malbec with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah to good effect, showing a freshness that runs through all their recent reds. Fresh, complex and subtle with filigree tannins this is a very harmonious red. Drink: 2015-19

Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Pure but subdued scents of dark raspberry, pepper, chocolate and menthol. Fine-grained, savory and fresh; an alluring, delineated midweight with spicy and floral high notes to its raspberry and currant fruit flavors..."

Rubbery, medicinal aromas suggest iodine and latex. This blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah is heavy and flabby, with baked, herbal flavors that finish saucy and show notes of tomato and fennel.

 

Game, mature cheeses, goat’s cheese, chocolate desserts.
