Winemaker's Notes

Among the very best wines being produced in South America, a "garage wine" from the celebrated Chilean winemaker Álvaro Espinoza.

Made with an organic blend of Carmenère (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), and Syrah (10%). Aged in French barrels for twelve months, then cellared in the bottle for six months.

Critical Acclaim

"Lovely aromas and flavors of blackberry, bramble, grilled meat and lilacs, with plenty of guts, ample structure and a solid, loamy finish. Shows both polished fruit and rugged terroir. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2011."
92 Points

"Intense and dark, with an oily nose of mineral, leather and mocha along with ripe berry fruit notes. The blend (50% Carmenère, 40% Cab Sauvignon, 10% Syrah), works like a charm. The flavors settle on lightly herb-infused berry flavors and chocolate, while the finish is on the spot. Rich, ripe and with modest tannins; drink now–2009."

This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
