Winemaker Notes

The 2016 vintage of our Max Reserva Carmenere displays a beautiful ruby red color. On the nose, aromas of red roasted pepper, tobacco, dill, and mushrooms are complimented by a subtle note of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, the wine shows fresh and delicate flavors of cherry and plum complimented by a touch of spice, chocolate and roasted coffee beans. The wine is well balanced with mouthwatering acidity and round, soft tannins.

Blend: 85% Carmenere, 11%Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
Let yourself be seduced by the delicate spice and forest berry fruits of this wine. Very good concentration and some real finesse in this medium-to-full carmenere. The finish is long and lively. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast

Ripe black fruit aromas offer a balsamic side note, while an intense palate is hardwired and firm, with spiced plum, cherry and peppery flavors. Heat and plenty of spice are in prime time on an untamed finish.

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.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
