Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, CarmenŠre 19%, Cabernet Franc 6%. Mid crimson with some evolution. Mellow, savoury nose with considerable tertiary bouquet. Warm, ripe and leathery. Mature, quite gentle Cabernet Sauvignon dominates ? very little overt CarmenŠre ?thickness?. Lightly tannic finish. Well balanced with just a hint of rusty nails on the finish. Lively and fresh. Bravo!

The partnership of Philippine de Rothschild of Mouton-Rothschild and Concho y Toro produced this exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine (there is also Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the blend), which takes its name from a character in The Marriage of Figaro. With wine making assistance from Mouton's team of experts, this estate has produced a saturated ruby/purple-colored wine with elegant, complex notes of cassis, pain grille, cedar, and tobacco. Soft, rich, and multidimensional, this full-bodied wine possesses exquisite complexity and a layered texture with no hard edges. Drinkable already, it promises to improve for 7-8 years, and last for 12 or more.

This massive red has more concentration than most Chilean reds, yet it's still polished and balanced, with ripe plum and cassis flavors accompanied by plenty of toasty, coffee notes from the heavy dose of new oak. It's more powerful than showy now, with a brooding depth that bodes well for the future. 3,700 cases made.
