Viñas Elias Mora 2017
"What a difference a year makes. A leading wine magazine reviewed this wine in March 2020 as “pushy, raw and almost unfriendly in how tannic it is.” Tasting it recently, I found the wine beautifully integrated, with lovely savory notes of dark cherry, sassafras and mushrooms. Rather than being pushed away, I felt embraced. ABV: 14.5 percent. 3 Stars (Extraordinary)
