92James Suckling

A flavorful and rich wine with lots of berry and chocolate character. Full body, round and velvety. Generous and pretty.

92Wine Enthusiast

Ripe berry, plum and prune aromas are mature and earthy, with a note of desiccation. A fleshy, plump palate is smooth...tastes of black plum and cassis with a spot of green herbs mixed in...smooth finish...

16Jancis Robinson

...ripe nose...with lots of plum and cherries, with a spicy touch. Sweet, ripe, a fruit bomb, dried figs, very round, juicy, smooth... Sweet tannins from the New World. Good richness of fruit.


Chile, Central Valley Region, Cachapoal Valley

Chile has produced wine since the 16th century, when Spanish conquistadores brought grape vines and established vineyards. Sweet wines were favored until well into the 19th century, when French immigrants began making dry wines with a decidedly French character. Chile’s long, narrow, coastal geography has made the transportation of wines challenging over the centuries, though today it is a major exporter. To the west is the Pacific Ocean, to the east are the Andes. But the isolation has also meant that Chile vineyards have so far never been attacked by phylloxera, meaning that unlike viticulturalists in many other part of the world, Chilean vineyards can be planted with original rootstock, saving producers the laborious job of grafting vines onto phylloxera-resistant rootstocks. Chile started an appellation system in 1994, and there are five regions each with numerous sub-regions. Chile has attracted investment from European and American producers, including Robert Mondavi Winery, Kendall-Jackson, Lafite-Rothschild and Miguel Torres.
