Vina Altair-Altair-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-Carmenere-Cachapoal Valley-Chile-2002-$65.00-A big bold nose of dark fruit and spice, dark ruby in color.  A smooth mix of spice, earth, black cherry, currants, nice tannins still for a wine that was cellared.  A great wine for special occasions,  I recommend that you decant for 1 hour, especially for younger vintages.         WS-89       CR-4.5-5    Good with steak, seafood and pasta.
