/ Great Maipo profile with dark loam, coffee, black licorice and tobacco flavors leading the way for a core of black currant fruit and a finish loaded with muscular tannins. Big and chewy so let this settle in with some cellaring.

Triple C 2007 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Smells like fortified wine and licorice at first, then more like earth and smoked meat. High acidity gives this blend a racy quality but also astringency, while flavors of blackberry, prune and licorice are very nice.

Triple C 2005 - 90 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Inky ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of cherry liqueur, dark chocolate and smoked meat are a bit brooding initially but gain energy with air. Deep, sweet dark berry flavors coat the palate, framed by velvety tannins. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which is broad, gently sweet and very long. This needs a hunk of grilled meat.

The Independent Consumer's Bimonthly Guide to Fine Wine/ ...Composed of 55% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Carmenere. It is a purple-colored wine with a classy nose of pain grillé , smoke, herbs, truffle, graphite, blueberry and blackberry. This is followed by a plush wine with reip, sweet fruit and outstanding integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. It will evolve for 4-6 years and drink well through 2030.

Triple C 2005 - 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ In the three vintages we've tasted this blend of Cabernet Franc, Cab Sauvignon and Carmenere, it has never slipped below 90 points. This 2005 version is the best yet; it has fine oak up front, with fresh berry aromas lurking below. The palate is sly, sexy and whole, with flavors of plum, cassis and leather. Secure on the finish, and overall there are no faults to be found.

Triple C 2007 - 94 points, Wine & Spirits/ A blend based on Cabernet Franc (55 percent) with Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère, this is a powerful Triple C with muscular black fruit. The concentration is matched by tannins as strong as steel girders. Despite being six years old, it seems not to have aged at all. Cellar it a few years more to let the wine's complexity develop.

Winemaker's Notes:

From Alto Jahuel and Maipo Valley. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean. Rain is mainly concentrated in the winter and strongly influenced by the "El Nio" phenomenon, which increases rainfall frequency. In this parcel of land in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, night temperatures are quite low due to the flow of cold air coming down from the mountains. This causes a thermal oscillation that can surpass 68F. The soils are of alluvial origin, stratified and gently sloped, of medium depth, loamy texture and basic pH.
