Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red color. The lively, spicy nose shows the intense character of Upper Maipo Valley. Elegant in style, this wine is well-balanced with astounding length. Black fruits blended with cassis and cigar notes are present.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 19% Carménère 9% Cabernet franc 7% Syrah
