The 2009 vintage has an intense and complex aroma of dark fruit and mineral notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with volume, balance and a lingering, soft finish. This 100% Maipo Valley estate fruit is hand harvested and is a blend of 41% Carmenère, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and
"Inky purple. A seductively perfumed bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries, cherry-cola, pipe tobacco and rose oil. Lush and creamy on entry, then tighter and more linear in the mid-palate, offering intense bitter cherry and cassis flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Finishes very long, with lingering vanilla and floral qualities."

"Concentrated on the nose, with spice, cola, leather and a pinch of salinic oyster shell. Feels round and healthy, with deep and textural tannins. Tastes dark and sweet, with blackberry, chocolate and licorice flavors. Toasty, solid and woodsy on the finish. Carmenere with Cabernet Sauvignon."
"The 12th vintage of winemaker Alvaro Espinoza's personal project, this shows the heat of the warm vintage in black fruit tempered by sweet spice. It's a big wine, structured by resonant acidity and frmed up by youthful tannins. For the cellar. "
