Winemaker's Notes:

Deep violet-ruby red, with a nose that starts with notes of sweet spice and chocolate and leads into black fruit that builds along with characteristic black pepper notes. Full of rich flavor and excellent typicity on the palate, with notes of roasted red peppers, soy sauce, cinnamon, and blackberries, complemented by tobacco and pencil lead. This is a lush, mouthfilling wine with soft, ripe and very sweet tannins and a firm acidity that refreshes and guarantees longevity in the bottle.

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.
