Viña Errázuriz Carmenère Aconcagua Valley Single Vineyard Don Maximiano Estate 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2004 Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is deep violet coloured and displays a bouquet characteristic of this favourite variety. On the nose tobacco and cedar scents come forward accompanied by sweet spices like cinnamon and ripe black and red cherries aromas. The young and spicy tannins give a beautiful backbone to this wine. The combination of this bouquet laced with the vanilla and smoky notes rendered by the oak, make this a beautiful wine with great complexity. In the mouth it is elegant, with a balanced and firm structure. A wine to be enjoyed upon release but easily able to age and gain complexity and roundness if properly cellared. http://www.errazuriz.com/errazuriz/english/wines/pdf/Max_Reserva_Cabernet_Sauvignon_2004.pdf

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
