A deep red color with a purplish hue. The nose offers an interesting combination of potency and elegance with predominantly intense aromas of black fruits such as blackberries and figs. Sweet spices including nutmeg intermingle with the potent aroma of dark chocolate in the background resulting in unique character and attitude. Aromas of cake and pastry fuse with light toasted notes that come from aging in French oak barrels. On the palate, it is very well structured and offers incredibly round tannins that lend volume, breadth, and a soft, sweet sensation. Very well-balanced acidity toward the mid-palate delivers an elegant, lingering finish.

James SucklingThe complexity of this is something very special with dark berries, hot stone, iodine, and oyster shells. Full-bodied, very tight and polished with creamy tannins that envelop your palate, caressing every inch. Deep and dark fruit and wet earth at the finish. Drink or hold.

Wine EnthusiastRipe berry aromas are supported by notes of coffee, mocha, smoldering charcoal and baking spices. A flush palate brings the fruit in quantity, while the flavors are all about quality and emphasize blackened, spicy blackberry, mocha and toast. Given that 2016 was a tough year for red wines in Chile, this is a big success. Drink through 2025.

Wine SpectatorAn opulent and spicy red, with notes of bourbon vanilla and hints of cardamom to the mouthwatering flavors of cherry pie, blackberry and plum tart. The juicy finish lingers with chocolate and cream accents, and a touch of dried green herb. Carmenère and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024. 17,000 cases made.
