Number 26 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!
"Terrific personality, with prune, cocoa, loam, mineral, dark currant, blackberry, tar and sanguine flavors that don't quit. Well structured, with fine balance and harmony already and a very long finish."
-Wine Spectator "Highly Recommended"
The Puente Alto Vineyard in the Maipo Valley has the perfect combination of climate and soils for producing world-class wine: the climate is ideal and predictable, and the soil is poor and gravelly to reduce yields and increase concentration naturally. After fermentation, the wine is matured in the finest French oak barriques for a year, followed by another year in the bottle before release.
The result is a rich, full-bodied wine with an unmistakable minty character in the bouquet and the finish. Drink with the finest roasts, and strong cheeses.
