Winemaker Notes

Black fruit notes such as blackberry and black cherry; floral notes such as violets; spicy notes of white pepper and also subtle aromas of black olive. On the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon from the El Mirador series reects the soil characteristics, with a pronouncedattack, aromas of cherry, blackcurrant (and an important sand presence). And also it has great structure (round tannins present) given by the presence of sharp stones and gravel. Flavorsome onthe palate, balanced and with good persistence (volcanic soil minerality gives for good persistence on the palate). The soil where the Syrah is located, gives for full-bodied, velvety wines (clay presence), with good persistence and a degree of minerality. Inour view, the Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc varieties have contributed considerably.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
A stylish red with subtle and complex aromas and flavors of spice, meat, berry and bark. Full body, bright and fresh. Shows tension and beauty. Fascinating. This is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 30% cabernet franc and 20% syrah.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Earthy, stalky aromas of tomato, olive and savory, meaty berry fruits set up a chewy, dense palate. Blackberry, cassis and mixed-spice flavors finish with chocolate and clove notes. This Cabernet-led blend is bold, oaky, rustic and powerful.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
