Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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 24% Syrah.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
92 Points

"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."
91 Points

"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. "

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....
