Winemaker's Notes

From our "La Finca" Estate in the Apalta Valley (Santa Cruz D.O., a sub-denomination of Colchagua Valley). Aurelio evaluated releasing a full Carmenère wine, as we have pure Carmenère vines, but after many combinations decided that this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carmenère (specified as such in the main label) brought forward the best of both varieties. Aged in American oak and with only one soft filtering, it provides great value. With beautiful and intense ruby red color, it has a very elegant aroma with notes of chocolate, cigar box, coffee and also of vanilla and butterscotch. To the palate it is ample, full, of medium body, soft and generous, with a long aftertaste. Decanting is recommended for at least 30 minutes. It can be cellared for four years or enjoyed now.
