Winemaker's Notes:

Deep plum-red in color, this wine shows the classic traits of the variety. The nose is ripe but complex, with aromas that recall fresh blackberries and notes of sweet spice. A swirl of the glass reveals a light touch of black pepper that lends complexity and elegance. The voluminous palate is complemented by a soft, creamy texture with well-rounded tannins in this big-bodied wine.

About Errazuriz:

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded ViƱa Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, north of Santiago. This valley has cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes--ideal for growing grapes. Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant, Eduardo Chadwick--the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernization of the winemaking technology at this historic estate while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines, dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality.
