Winemaker's Notes:

Number 31 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

The creation of Único Luis Miguel wine is a passionate departure for the multi Grammy winner, who has more than 35 platinum records and a career total of more than 52 million records sold. A long-time wine collector and connoisseur, Luis Miguel worked side-by-side with Aurelio Montes Del Campo, winemaker for Chile's Viña Ventisquero, to hand select the grapes and craft the complex, seductive, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Único Luis Miguel is produced from grapes grown in the Maipo Valley, one of Chile's most renowned regions for producing high quality, elegant and complex Cabernet Sauvignons.

"I've always admired and respected the artistry and passion that goes into crafting a great wine," said Luis Miguel. "When I set out to create ÚNICO Luis Miguel, it was important to me to find a partner that shared my vision. Viña Ventisquero is the perfect choice because of its progressive approach to winemaking and extraordinary vineyards. It has been great working alongside such a well respected winemaker as Aurelio and I'm excited about the tremendous wine that we've created."

Tasting Note
An intense cherry-red in color with hints of blue; complex aromas of ripe raspberries and black currant are uniquely complimented by black pepper spices, cedar and tobacco notes. Expressive and full on the palate with a balanced body and distinctive, ripe, round tannins that linger on the long, chocolate finish.

About Unico Luis Miguel:

After three years of collaboration, including vineyard tours, barrel sampling and extensive blending sessions, Latin superstar Luis Miguel and Aurelio Montes del Campo, Vina Ventisquero's winemaker, unveiled an exciting new Chilean wine brand called Unico Luis Miguel. The 2003 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon first debuted at a press conference at the Vinta Ventisquero cellars in Rancagua, Chile in November 2005.

The first vintage was released in both Chile and Mexico and sold out almost immediately. The sales reflected the vast appeal of Luis Miguel and reinforced that consumers find Unico to be an outstanding value. "When you taste Unico you'll realize our efforts have paid off immensely," says Luis Miguel. "It is a complex, seductive wine that is truly delicious."

The Gran Reserva Cabernet originates in the coastal zone of the Maipo Valley, a region renowned for producing elegant, high quality wines. The grapes were hand selected to create an inviting, velvety and rich Cabernet Sauvignon.
