Winemaker's Notes

Low yields and hand harvesting indicate the care given to the superior fruit from this single-vineyard winery located on the gravelly slopes of the Maipo Valley. These standards extend to the wine-making process, with meticulous grape selection and aging in French oak barrels for 12 months. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc this is a complex and velvety wine with a soft structure, spicy tannins, and a fruity finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon offers violets, spice box, and black currant in its expressive nose. Supple, smooth-textured, and easygoing, this nicely balanced wine will provide pleasure over the next five years. Drink 2009-2014."
89 Points

"Stylish, with mint and sage notes leading the way for a supple palate of red cherry, black cherry and currant laced with hints of cedar and mineral. Drink now thruogh 2010."
88 Points

"Fresh red currant and cherry flavors are light in body and refreshingly tangy, with no obvious tannins. A bitter chocolate note adds edge to the tightly focused finish."

I tried this at a restuarant and it was good. I liked it enough that I searched for it. In fact it is the wine that led me to Wine.com. So I owe it a great deal of thanks! It wasn't overly dry. A good finish. Let it breathe and it just crawls under your skin. It gets better with each sip. Made my wife and I crave a steak. Not including the restaurant, the 1st bottle was great. 2nd was not as good. We'll see if 3 times is a charm.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. 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....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
