RATINGS

100James Suckling

...aromas of warm earth, mushrooms and conifer, turning to dark berries and black olives. The palate is more glamorous with ultra-fine tannins that envelop your palate. Shows power and vibrancy at the end.

98The Wine Advocate

...achieved very good ripeness and full development of aromas and flavors, making the wine nuanced and complex, with depth but also freshness and finesse—floral and expressive...tannins are very fine, polished and elegant, and the wine is long and complex...

98Jeb Dunnuck

Offering up impressive cassis and darker berry fruits as well as notes of violets, truffle, damp earth, tobacco, and candied orange peel, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a great, seamless texture, no hard edges, and just about flawless tannins. The overall freshness and purity as well as its seamless texture all make for a compelling, world class wine.

95Vinous / IWC

...black currant and blackberry over secondary woody notes plus balsamic, peppery aromas and hints of mint and saffron...relaxed and juicy with polished tannins sustained by a delicate freshness. This is a wine that delivers layer after layer, presenting its own interpretation of elegance.

94Wine Spectator

Vibrant acidity backs a minerally mix of dried red currant, cherry and berry flavors in this suave red, loaded with savory richness. The elegant finish shows hot stone accents backed by fresh tannins.

17.5+ Jancis Robinson

Peppery deep cassis, excellent purity on the nose. Very enticing and sophisticated. There is a hint of dark, mint chocolate. Good precision and delineation of fruit on the palate. This is grown-up, with cool blackcurrant, fresh black cherry and flecks of spicy pepper and fresh herbs.

REGION

Chile, Aconcagua Region

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.
