Wonderful wine that can pair seriously with steaks and hardy cuisine. Complex and unique. Read more

Butter and oak for sure but this is definitely not Cali Chard. I got a lot of interesting Banana notes. The creamy finish was very nice too. Read more

My rep just dropped this off at my restaurant for "sampling"... Was busy, not really paying attention... the rep left... was thirsty. The server brought me a glass while prepping for the evening... HELLO !!! dropped everything... called the rep's cell and squeezed in an order for it. Haven't had a reasonably priced Chilean wine of this caliber since the 99 Los Vascos (Lafite) reserve cab. I love it when wineries drop gems like this one on the market. Only paid $10.99 a bottle !!!

Winemaker's Notes:

From our "La Finca" Estate in the Apalta Valley (Santa Cruz D.O., a sub-denomination of Colchagua Valley). Aurelio evaluated releasing a full Carménère wine, as we have pure Carménère vines, but after many combinations decided that this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carménère (specified as such in the main label) brought forward the best of both varieties. Aged in American oak for six months and with only one soft filtering, it provides great value. With beautiful and intense ruby red color, it has a very elegant aroma with notes of chocolate, cigar box, coffee and also of vanilla and butterscotch. To the palate it is ample. Medium to full body, soft and generous, with a long aftertaste. Decanting is recommended for at least 30 minutes. It can be cellared for four years or enjoyed now. D.O. Colchagua Valley.
