Winemaker's Notes:

A deep red-colored wine with violet tones and aromatic expression that reflects a balance of varietal aromas including sweet spices, roasted peppers, and floral notes. The palate is intense, with smooth, friendly tannins and a pleasant, balanced acidity that leads to an enjoyable and refreshing finish.

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.
