92James Suckling

An amphora-made cinsault with dried berry and hints of walnut. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish.

91Wine Enthusiast

Dark aromas of violet, black cherry, plum and wet clay lead to a flush, well-balanced palate. .abundance of pure plum, currant and cherry fruit. The finish is bright and lively as well.

16Jancis Robinson

Super sweet and fruity... Rose petal aromas. Then quite light and reasonably tart on the palate. Most unusual but with considerable charm. Piercing precision.



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.
