Errazuriz was founded in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago, and at the foot of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the seven summits of the world. Recognizing that this valley was ideal for growing grapes, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, Don Maximiano Errazuriz sent for the finest clones from France, and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition lives on with Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of his family to lead this exceptional estate. Eduardo’s work has been colossal, bringing Errazuriz into a new era where it is acknowledged as a producer of world-class wines, and opened eyes around the globe as to Chile’s incredible and diverse sites. As an estate winery, Errazuriz strives to produce the finest wines through meticulous attention to every stage of viticulture and vinification, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion for wine that has made Errazuriz such an internationally respected producer of quality wines. Check us out at www.errazuriz.com Read less

A bit of a strange "cat litter box" nose, ammonia heavy. Fine but average on the palate.

Do you like blueberry. This wine is an expression of blueberry in every way. You taste blueberry from start to finish......no layers just blueberry.

Bright purple, black pepper and tobacco ‘cigar box’ nose. Rich and tannic, good now but needs another year. Damsons and stewed fruit on the palate. Very clean and well made, delicious, excellent VFM. Winemaker Francisco Baettig comes up trumps again. I hate to think how much you'd have to pay to get this quality in the Old World. 16.5 / 20

Cab is usually a chewy and tough wine in its youth, whilst this was much more fuit-driven and approachable with ripe blackcurrant, some spice and pepperiness and a long finish, but rather less complex and sophisticated for it. The extra couple of degrees of alcohol result in a wine that is riper, juicier and more approachable, but less complex and with less aging potential as a result - which is apparently what most wine-buyers look for these days.

Fülliger Wein, Brombeeren- und Pflaumenbouquet, im Mund herrlicher Cassisduft. Langanhaltender Abgang.

Tiefes Purpurrot. Schwarzbeerige Nase nach Brombeeren und schwarzen Johannisbeeren, dazu gesellen sich eine Spur roter Pfeffer und Muskatnuss, auch Veilchen. Intensive Gaumenaromatik mit wiederum schwarzbeerigen Noten, auch etwas Zedernholz; eine angenehme Tanninstruktur und ein schön ausbalanciertes Finale runden diesen kräftigen Carmenère ab.

Sehr intensives Rubinrot. Köstliche Merlot-Nase nach Pflaumen und Preiselbeeren, auch Zedernholznoten. Saftiges Gaumenbild mit Kirschnoten, die von einer guten Würze unterstützt werden, dezente Röstaromen nach Vanille und Milchschokolade, samtene Tanninstruktur, gute Länge.

Deep violet-red in color, this wine shows in the nose spicy and fruity characters along with soft toasted hints from its oak ageing. In the mouth displays a smooth attack with round, firm tannins of silky texture, complemented by flavors of ripe red and black fruit along with a balanced acidity that bring a pleasant finish.

Dunkles, glänzendes Himbeerrosa. Nase nach schwarzen Johannisbeeren und frisch gepflückten Erdbeerem, begleitet von einem Hauch schwarzem Pfeffer. Charmanter Gaumen mit viel roter Beerenfrucht, exzellente Fruchtsüsse, auch etwas Zimt im Hintergrund, insgesamt schön füllig und sehr harmonisch.

Glänzendes Himbeerrosa. Feines Bouquet nach Himbeeren und reifen Erdbeeren, feinwürzig dahinter. Tänzerischer Gaumen mit einer wiederum schönen Beerenaromatik, tolle Fruchtsüsse, ein Hauch Pfeffer, erfrischende Säure, sanfter Abgang.
