Winemaker Notes

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere and 5% Merlot.

Hints of concentrated ripe black fruits, leather and graphite dance with flavors of dried fruit and chocolate.

Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months, followed by an additional 8 months in the bottle. A noteworthy Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has a deep red color with great character and finesse. On the palate, the wine has great body, with firm tannins and a long and persistent finish. Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal accompaniment to lamb with spicy sauces and full-flavored cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Pirque Vineyard delivers notes of cigar box, leather, mineral, blackcurrant and blackberry. This leads to an elegant, Bordeaux-like wine with spicy, savory flavors, excellent balance, and a lengthy finish. It will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021.

Terrunyo, South America
Terrunyo Pirque Viejo Vineyard Winery Image

Inspired by a drive to highlight Chile’s most celebrated terroirs in a collection of varietal wines whose quality and finesse echo that of the world’s finest wines, Terrunyo wines are crafted with a philosophy of terroir in mind. Named for terruño, the Spanish word for terroir, each Terrunyo wine begins with hand-harvested fruit. A micro-climate, the chosen grape stock, a select piece of soil and an expert hand interact, creating perfect harmony and delivering unrivaled quality.

Chile remains an exciting frontier for wines of all styles with dramatic changes in geography and climate occurring from west to east in this long and narrow South American country. Chile’s entire western border is Pacific coastline, its center is composed of warm valleys and on its eastern border, are the soaring Andes Mountains.

Chile’s central valleys, sheltered by the costal ranges, and in some parts climbing the eastern slopes of the Andes, remain relatively warm and dry. The conditions are ideal for producing concentrated, full-bodied, aromatic reds rich in black and red fruits. The eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry—is home to intense red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

The Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys specialize in Cabernet and Bordeaux Blends as well as Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape.

Chilly breezes from the Antarctic Humboldt Current allow the coastal regions of Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley to focus on the cool-climate loving varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Chile’s Coquimbo region in the far north, containing the Elqui and Limari Valleys, historically focused solely on Pisco production. But here the minimal rainfall, intense sunlight and chilly ocean breezes allow success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata in the south make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile sometime in the 1550s. One fun fact about Chile is that its natural geographical borders have allowed it to avoid phylloxera and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted.

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, Malbec and 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.
