I have fallen in LOVE with the reds out of this vineyard in the Cohchugua Valley of Chile. Their fresh, distinctive quality and absolute definitive & distinctive freshness, purity, and adherence to the grape varietal flavor is beyond phenomenal. What I love even more is that for the price points on these wines, you are getting better taste & quality for your dollar; definitely NOT overpaying for wine- you are UNDERPAYING for the quality of the syrah, carmenere, and cabernet. I have the best description of their med-heavy reds - DECADENT VELVET WITH ABSOLUTE PERFECTED PURITY & DINSTINCTIVE FRESHNESS. TRY THEIR WINES! THEY ARE WELL WORTH THE PRICE UNDER $20 for young vintages- and the quality increases yearly uncorked! THESE ARE BEYOND BEST BUYS! THESE ARE BEST EVERS! Read less

Beautiful bold carmenere with a startling beginning and boutiful middle- it's carmenere picked, fermented and presented at it's prime. This is NOT a recork & save for next day wine at all... it is so distinctly decadent that it won't last anyway... WELL DONE & WORTH THE PRICE POINT!

Vina Echeverria only make wine from their estate grown grapes, all of which originate from ungrafted select clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Chardonnay (20%) and Merlot (2%). High priority is given to care in the vineyards and canopy management to control vegetative growth. Exposure to sunlight and air movement on the leaves are maximised, leading to almost organic viticulture with the minimum use of agrochemical prod...
