    Winemaker's Notes:

    The elegant, silky 2006 Maquis Lien is made from a finely tuned blend of 42% Syrah, 30% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot, and 7% Malbec. It is a complex red wine that reflects the character of the Hurtado family's special plot of land.

    To make this fruity and intense wine, winemakers Alejandro Jofré and Ricardo Rivadeneira Hurtado cultivated vines that bear no more than 12 bunches of grapes per vine. Only the ripest grapes are picked, then sorted by hand at the winery.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Excellent balance, forward, and tasty.

    Ruby-red. Mellow, smoky aromas of cherry, singed plum, licorice and oak. Packs a solid punch but this is surprisingly light in weight, even graceful, offering sweet dark fruit flavors and good spicy lift. Shows an exotic floral quality on the long, sappy, sharply focused finish.

    I bought at a substantial discount (~50%) from the suggested price, and as such, had discounted my expectations accordingly. Wow! I wish I always could get a nicely balanced red wine at this price. In my initial taste of this wine I tasted a slight harshness that I wasn't too keen about. However, after letting the wine breath a bit, this harshness mellowed alot and the wine blossomed nicely. Full, yet not harsh. I would recommend to anyone, if you can find now.
