Winemaker Notes

Tarapaca Gran Reserva Etiqueta Negra is an intense ruby red color. This wine expresses the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon from the El Rosario Estate, displaying notes of black fruit, like blackcurrants and cassis, intermingled with delicate herbal notes. The barrel-aging contributes complex notes of leather, tobacco and subtle notes of truffles. Well-balanced, with great length and highly concentrated flavours. With robust, well-structured tannins that are also rounded and ripe, this is an elegant wine with a persistent finish.

Blend: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

Dark plums and blackberries with chili and spice-box undertones. Some dried flowers, too. Full-bodied with fine tannins. Fleshy texture in the mouth with joyful, rich and fruity character. More structured and spicy at the finish. Yet, all in balance and not overdone. Drink or hold.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Full and complex aromas of hot stones, black fruit, wood spice and char are compelling in front of a youthful palate. Blackberry, coffee, chocolate and peppery wood-spice flavors hum with residual ripe-berry notes on a deep finish. Drink from 2021–2028. Cellar Selection.

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, 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.
