The sort of bottle that could only come from Chile. The very old vines of País are bush trained in the Bío-Bío Valley, in a place so isolated there is no need for sulfur or copper treatments in the vineyard. This goes far beyond organic viticulture. Of Roberto's 2019s, this is probably the most serious and the most elegant, with a firmer bone of tannic structure and acidity. The nose shows red fruits, garrigue, stone, and a certain savory character; the palate is long, balanced, and medium-bodied, with raspberry and blackberry, delicate herbal spice, and a very mineral finish. One of the best Chilean bottles I've ever tasted. Delicious now, but I'd love to see where it is in four or five years.
