August Wine Club - Chile

I bought this today for August wine club
2004 Cono Sur Limited 20 Barrels Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, $25.
High-toned oak that’s softly sweet. Hugely concentrated. Rich berry, with oak, chocolate, plum, coffee and cedar flavors. Rich and regal and generous. Long, engaging finish. Decant. Outstanding.

Review I found.

90 points Wine & Spirits: "A big, impressive cabernet with strong black fruit character, this wine's ripe currant and pepper aromas evolve into sweet cherry flavors. Young and tight, save it a year and the pair with roasted lamb." According to the Wine Enthusiast: "Straightforward yet enticing berry, oak and tar aromas get it off to a good start. The palate runs extremely juicy and racy, as lively acidity pushes angular cherry, cassis, berry and plum flavors. Quite bright and jumpy for Chilean Cabernet, but also quite good." (11/15/2006)

this was my favorite wine of the evening. Nice balanced and not overpowering. Probably going to buy one.
