Winemaker's Notes

Le Dix 2006 has a deep garnet color, almost black. The powerful nose develops aromas of very ripe black fruit and wild cherries complemented by aromas of wax, cedar, laurel, and licorice. The oak is pleasantly integrated with the fruit. This adds to the wine enjoyable aromas of toasted coffee, vanilla, tobacco and cinnamon. The Syrah adds nuances of violets and raspberries. In the mouth, it is round, dense, fresh and fruity. The wine is very concentrated, very balanced and elegant, fresh and long with rich but ripe and soft tannins. It finishes with a strong taste of cherry (kirsch) and a light bitterness of walnut peel typical of great Cabernets. The Carmenère adds an enjoyable touch of pepper.

This superb wine is already very expressive and less austere than the 2004. It is still young but will rapidly gain in complexity and softness. To drink from 2009 and later. Very good ageing potential. A very fine vintage!

"Deep purple in color, with aromas of cassis, blackberry and coffee, this wine's flavors are equally warm. It's refreshed by the tension between the tannin and acidity." 91 Points

The acquisition of 50% of Los Vascos by Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988 was the result of a careful search among more than one hundred Chilean wines for one that could meet their criteria for excellence.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
