Winemaker's Notes

Deep, intense ruby red. The nose reveals pure, delicate aromas of ripe blackcurrants, wild strawberries and blackberries, blended with hints of minerals and fine notes of vanilla, coffee, licorice and spices. The mouth shows outstanding balance, a firm tannic structure anbd exceptional length. The tannins are ripe, refined and concentrated, contributing to the density and elegant texture of the wine.

A complex, graceful and brilliant wine, pure and precise in its mineral character, persistent and layered, harmoniously balanced by a great acidity.

66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Carmenere, 8% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"Broad and muscular, boasting lots of dark currant and fig paste notes laced with loam, licorice snap and espresso flavors. The dense, fleshy finish lets a hint of roasted sage smolder. Very solid for the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. 12,000 cases made."

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....
