Winemaker Notes

This Cabernet presents a complex, profound nose with spicy flourishes of cinnamon, clove, cocoa and red fruits. It is a vibrant, fresh wine with a long finish and tannins that come together to produce a smooth, beautiful, harmonious flavor.

Critical Acclaim

TA 93
Tim Atkin
Clay-based soils with some underlying stones supplied the grapes for this judiciously blended Cabernet Sauvignon with 6% Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Bright, balanced, floral and showing the filigree tannins that are part of the Maquis style, this is wonderfully elegant and taut. 2021-29
JS 91
James Suckling
This has a fresh array of brambly, ripe dark-berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Quite fleshy, grainy tannins hold the long, smooth finish.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of plum, cherry, oak and leather require airing to find their stride, while this is concentrated on the palate. Mild oak flavors frame black fruit, resulting in spice and chocolate notes. A tight finish with a grip of tannins is lasting and structured. Drink through 2023.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is from an early harvest and contains 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. It comes from clay-rich soils that provide roundness. It fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for one year. It has very good varietal definition and is balanced and elegant, following the house style. It has fine tannins and good freshness and is a notable improvement in this vineyard planted in 1997. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.
TP 90
Tasting Panel

Deep garnet color; silky-smooth with rich flavors of plum and spice; fresh, lively, and tangy with a hint of herbaceousness.

Maquis Winery Video
The Hurtado family has owned the Vina Maquis vineyard for more than a century, but it wasn't until ten years ago that the family decided to make their own wine out of the terrific grapes in their own backyard. They built a gorgeous, state-of-the-art gravity flow winery and set out to make a "Super Chilean" blend using the vineyard's best red grapes.

Located in Valle de Colchagua, Vina Maquis's terroir is deeply influenced by its geographic position, as it is surrounded by the Tinguiririca River and the Chimbarongo Creek—two large waterways that once brought alluvial sediments from the Andes. Today, they act as pathways for cool coastal breezes that help moderate the warm Colchagua summers, contributing to the intensity and fruitiness of the wines.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
