Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby-red in color, this wine has a very expressive nose with a profile of fresh red and black fruits such as cassis, blackcurrant, coffee and cedar, along with sweet spice notes that heighten the blend. These aromas are complemented on the palate with a balsamic touch that lends additional complexity and fine, supple tannins lead to a very firm yet friendly wine. Fresh acidity brightens the flavors, prolongs the finish, and ensures that the wine will age very well for years to come.

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.
