2017 Chakana Estate Red Blend - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(aged in 50% new French oak): Bright red-ruby. Reticent, distinctly purple aromas of raspberry and violet. A step up in texture from the Estate Selection Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec bottlings, with its primary purple fruits possessing enough extract to support the obvious oak influence. Finishes with tactile, tooth-dusting tannins and lingering notes of purple fruits, flowers, menthol and pepper. A very successful blend that nicely combines Cabernet Sauvignon herbs and tannins with Cabernet Franc florality. There's no hurry to drink this. - Stephen Tanzer"
