"A fascinating handmade wine with so much earth and spice aromas and flavors. Full body, light tannins and a rich and flavorful finish. So much going on here. Made from bought grapes from small growers mostly in the Caquenes region. Old head pruned vines. Pais, cinsult, carignan, malbec, syrah, portugais bleu. Soulful. Drink now."

"The nose of the balsamic blend 2013 Cauquenina reminded me of the Latuffa -- exotic, perfumed, minty, hinting on eucalyptus, cola nut and dried flowers. It's a multi-grape blend from six old vineyards, some field blends and some with separate varieties; it's made up of almost half of Carignan (Cariñena) with Syrah and Malbec, as well as some 5% to 6% each of Carmenere and Portuguais Bleu, with no oak whatsoever. The palate is superbly integrated and compact, very tasty with lively acidity and a mineral finish. Again, this has a marked style/profile, very showy and aromatic. This has to be one of the best values in Chile, a pleasant red that is so easy to drink, it might be dangerous..."~Luis Gutierrez
