92The Wine Advocate

...palate is powerful, with plenty of tannins...

92Wine Enthusiast

Oak aromas sit atop a concentrated black-fruit nose...solid and smooth. Rich flavors of mint and blackberry are accented by peppery spice and herbal notes, while the finish is lengthy, intense and jammy in texture.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Unctuous and seductive nose with ripe bramble fruits and campfire smoke. Rounded palate with a hefty frame and leathery currant notes, a big wine but has real charm behind it. Fine tannins and good acidity... Nicely put together... Sleek, glossy and warming.


Chile, Central Valley Region, Colchagua 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.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
