Winemaker Notes

Deep red in color, with concentrated ripe black fruit aromas intertwined with leather, chocolate and graphite in a perfect balance. Dense with soft tannins and a sweet aftertaste. Persistent chocolate and dried fruit flavors on the lingering finish.

Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal accompaniment to lamb with spicy sauces and full-flavored cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A rich red, this is packed with liqueur-like aromas and robust tannins, herbal notes bringing freshness to the mix. The heat of 2012 shows in the sweet ripeness of the flavor, while the tannic structure has a classical firmness, suggesting five years of cellaring.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A big, strapping red, with flavors of dark currant, mineral, graphite and dried plum, powered by muscular tannins and plenty of fresh acidity. The rich, cream-filled finish, featuring dark chocolate notes, completes the package. Drink now through 2020.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Winemaker Ignacio Recabarren prefers Pirque in Alto Maipo to Puente Alto, and that is exactly the source for the 2012 Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon. This terroir always produces a note of graphite and some earthy hints, with classical aromas of blackberries and tobacco leaf, with good ripeness and moderate spiciness from the elevage. The palate is medium to full-bodied with the telltale Cabernet tannins and very good balance.

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.

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.

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.
