Expert Reviews

93 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2009

($90; 63% cabernet sauvignon, 26% carmenere, 9% cabernet franc and 2% merlot) Deep red with a bright rim. Rich cassis and blackberry aromas are complicated by roasted coffee, anise and pipe tobacco nuances. Broad and fleshy, with sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors, supple texture and slow-building tannins. Becomes more energetic with air, offering tangy redcurrant and raspberry flavors that carry through the sappy finish. Impressively pure wine that deftly blends depth and power with energy. (Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, New York, NY)

About Chile

Virtually every wine region in Chile benefits from proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the cooling Humboldt Current that flows up from the South Pole.
