Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby-red in color, with an expressive nose that shows sweet spices such as cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg that come from the oak barrels and heighten the wine's fresh fruit profile, while light meaty and balsamic touches lend complexity. The smooth palate has fine tannins that create a firm but friendly attack and flavors that confirm the aromatic profile, dominated by the sweet spices and red and black fruits. An excellent acidity promises a long life ahead 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.
