Winemaker's Notes

Low yields and hand-harvesting indicate the care given to the superior fruit from this single vineyard located on a gravelly slope in the Maipo Valley. These standards continue in the winery with meticulous grape selection and aging in French oak barrels for 14-18 months, and bottled without filtration.

This is a complex and velvety wine with abundant fruit of wild berries and cassis, and a refined whisper of eucalyptus. This wine will benefit from 3-5 years of bottle aging.

"Dark and fleshy, with roasted coffee, bittersweet cocoa, loam and blackberry all held together by a nice graphite edge on the finish. Rock-solid expression of Maipo Cab in a quality vintage. Drink now through 2009."
-Wine Spectator
