Herbal and mineral on the nose with lemony base notes and retrained red currant and cranberry fruit. Bright and crisp on entry with spicy herbal and big mineral notes that reverberate on the fairly fruity but tight palate. Nice crushed raspberry fruit with a hint of lingonberry on the backend and then this settles into a long, decisive, mineral and acid driven finish. Man this is fresh and vivid, with an almost salty minerality to it. Super fun stuff. 90pts

Fine, bit of green bell pepper, green peppercorn over lots of very Cabernet black currant fruit. Spicy floral notes, purple fruits, small berries. Bright, very finely balanced, focused, again very aromatic but not as fruity as even I might like. Texturally very fine, soft tannins, nice tension, perfumey fruit, elegant in the light sense. 88pts

7% Cabernet Sauvignon Aromas of black currants, fire roasted chilies and spicy green herbs great the nose along with some very well integrated wood accents. Rather nicely focused in the mouth with a core of gentle fruit that hints at strawberry and blackberry flavors that carries with a haunting suggestion of sweetness. while it’s wrapped in gentle tea tones. The oak pops on the back end, adding nuanced mocha and cocoa accents to the palate. There is a faint dried herbal edge across the palate and some firm tannins emerge on the backend and through the moderately long, clean and precise finish. Delicious and eminently drinkable. 89pts

Citrusy grapefruit aromas. Very tart, but with strong, underlying fruit, with a very fruity finish.

citrus, orange peel, and lemon zest aromas with a tinge of herbal notes. bit of zing on the palate, refreshing, crisp.

I never would have thought of Carmenere making anything close to a Rose, but I was so wrong. Apaltagua hit the nail on the head and is producing one of the best Chilean Rose wines out there. This really reminds me of Provencal Roses' with the crisp refreshing dryness and wonderful array of light berry flavors. This is a perfect Rose for the summer.

Acidic on the nose with grapefruit, and something heavier lurking behind, almost musky or meaty to me. Tastes a bit perfumed but with a salty quality. Fruitier nuances linger on finish. Acidic but not overly mouthwateringly so, not too much sweetness here. I'd definitely do this again.

Have never been a Rosé guy before, but this is totally different. Great wine.
