Winemaker Notes

A pretty red color with ruby-red highlights. Expressive on the nose, with a broad range of aromas that denote tremendous complexity, featuring red fruit such as cherry, cassis, and raspberry, subtler notes of red currant, tobacco, and hazelnuts, and some balsamic tones. Voluptuous on the palate, this wine features extremely fine, firm, and sweet tannins along with bitter chocolate, cherries, and sweet spice flavors. Its outstanding acidity gives the wine a youthful, refreshing feeling, which presages an excellent cellaring potential.

James Suckling
A gorgeous and refined red with wonderfully polished tannins and texture. Full to medium body, with harmony. Aftertaste of delicate chocolate, light berry, and mineral. Drink or hold. 78% cabernet sauvignon, 10% carmenere, 7% petit verdot, and 5% syrah.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Syrah aged for 22 months in French oak, of which 81% is new. It has a lush, ripe, rounded bouquet with well-integrated oak, again, more floral in style than the 2008 or 2009, more feminine and generous. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit as well as fine tannins. Finally, after so many years, I feel that the oak is in synch and not subjugating the fruit, rendering this a far more impressive Cabernet that gives pleasure. Drink 2014-2025.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Floral aromas of cassis and plum are open, spicy and complex, with a balsamic accent. This feels solid as a rock, with firm tannins and a lively flavor profile that includes blackberry, baked notes, spice and cocoa powder. On the finish, oak is reflected through flavors of vanilla and mocha. Drink from 2014–2022.
V 91
Vinous

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Don Maximiano is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carménère, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc from Panquehue, Aconcagua, aged in 80% new oak. Garnet red with a brick-dust sheen. The aromatic profile is balsamic with jammy notes, chutney, bitter chocolate and wood initially followed by hints of red currant, liqueur and more complex aromas from the aging process. The generous palate is indulgent at first, lit up by a lick of alcohol. The beginnings of a bouquet can be detected at the back of the mouth.

Errazuriz Winery Video

Errázuriz is recognized as perhaps the single top-quality producer of Chilean wines, within recent years. Eduardo Chadwick, President, was named Decanter Man of the Year 2018, and the winery was awarded Best Chilean Winery 2017 by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. As an estate winery, Errázuriz strives to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the winemaking process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines of elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion for wine that has made Errázuriz such an internationally respected producer of quality wines. 

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Viña 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.

The Aconcagua River runs east from the charming costal town of Valparaiso and bisects the land creating the valley after which it was named. While alluvial soils predominate the Aconcagua Valey along its river throughout, its east-west flow creates drastically different conditions on each of its ends. Its western, seaside vineyards, with clay and stony soils upon gently rolling hills, produce cool-climate varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Its inner region is one of Chile’s hottest and produces some of its best red wines. Panquehue in the inner Aconcagua is the site of Chile’s first Syrah vines, planted in 1993.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
