Viña Errazuriz Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard.Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Our 2006 Max Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our Max Vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley, a region with a Mediterranean climate that features moderately warm summer days and cooling afternoon breezes. The vines are planted on a 5° slope on well-drained gravel-sandy-clay soils. The grapes were hand-picked in late April, carefully hand-sorted, and gently crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. All lots were aged for 12 months in 52% new French and American oak barrels. Ruby-red with violet highlights, this wine has a rich nose with intense aromas of red and black fruits such as cherries, strawberries, and plums that meld with notes of spice, such as cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla that add a sense of sweetness and elegance. The palate opens with a pleasing sweet sensation and soft tannins that result in a lush palate with firm structure. The medium-to-long finish is complemented by flavours of toffee, caramel, and chocolate, ending with a lovely freshness.

Broad and deep, with some rich, ripe aromatics some might call stewy. But the wine itself is balanced and healthy, with cassis, cherry and tobacco flavors. The finish sports a liqueur-like sweetness, and the tannins are just right.

Lots to admire in this full-bodied, flavor packed Cabernet. Concentrated, blackberry, currant and sweet summer ripe fruits with a satisfying, lumbering texture. Robust, weighty and spiced, yet remains friendly with balanced tannin.

From Chile comes this muscular red, showing firm tannins under chocolate, licorice, black olive and plum flavors. A good, affordable option in Cabernet, it's rich enough for food and balanced enough to improve through 2000.

Hints of menthol lend freshness to this wine's seductively ripe black fruit. Its potent structure needs a couple years in the bottle to mellow.

A good forward style, with a mix of plum, cherry, herb and toast notes, followed by honest grip on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.

Vivid red. Pungent aromas of dark cherry and cassis, plus a tangy note of blood orange. Spicy, tightly wound dark berry flavors possess good depth and clarity, with fine tannins adding support. Leaves zesty mineral and pepper notes behind the sappy finish. I like this wine's energy and bite.

Shows more traditional clay, mineral and smote notes on the nose, but then has a polished, modern, extracted palate. Currant, plum and cassis flavors ride over sweet, ripe tannins, turning toasty on the finish. Lots to like here. To be released April 2001; drink upon release.
