As an immigrant miner during the California gold rush, Chilean-born Joaquin Murrieta and his family were victims of ethnic discrimination, suffering much at the hands of American miners.
Forced off his claim under the Foreign Miner’s Tax of the 1850’s, he was pushed into a life of crime and into wearing the mask. Murrieta fought to defend lives and livelihoods of his people – stealing cattle and horses, robbery and even murder.
Revel in layer upon layer of surprise in this Chile Cabernet Merlot Syrah. Enticing hints of smoke and luscious qualities are intricately woven into this wine’s darkly exotic character.
This full-bodied dry wine presents aromas of juicy blackberries, cassis, mocha and spices. On the palate, it showcases polished tannins and a smooth finish.
