James Suckling 91
"Dark and smoky. The major tannin structure needs until 2019 or 2020 to fully harmonize, but this does have more than enough berry fruit to carry that."
On the nose, red berries, black berries, smoke and toasted aromas come through. Juicy on the palate, with cherry and chocolate notes in combination with toasted oak. This wine is well structured and full-bodied with smooth tannins and a long finish.
The grapes from this wine are grown in the Colchagua Valley and Maule Valley both belong to the Chilean Central Valley. This combination gives a full body character to the wine. The Maule Valley terroir provides structure and body to the wine while the Colchagua Valley adds a fruity aromas. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in barriques and stainless steel tanks for 12 months.
