    Winemaker's Notes:

    75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.

    Deep, dark-ruby color, this wine displays complex aromas of blackberry and plum fruit with a generous amount of cassis and hints of cedar and baking spices. Fullbodied with elegant tannins, it shows luscious flavors of blackberry, currant, soy and sweet oak spices. The solid core of delicious concentrated black fruits is framed by light toasty oak and ripe tannin. The supple and seamless theme continues into the long, ultrasmooth finish A wine for roasted, or braised red meats. Also perfect paired with marinated venison, or steak au poivre.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the second vintage of LOTA, a limited production wine which has instantly become one of Chile’s icons. The 2005 LOTA is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. It was barrel-fermented and aged for 15 months in 85% new French oak. Saturated purple in color, it delivers a fragrant bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Layered, bordering on opulent, it offers up mouth-filling, savory fruit, spicy black fruit flavors, excellent depth and concentration, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for 4-5 years and be at its best from 2013 to 2025.

    Vivid ruby. Cherry, cassis and sexy Asian spices on the nose, with musky tobacco and herbal qualities adding complexity. Deep and pliant, offering sweet dark berry and candied cherry flavors and slow-building tannins. The spicy note repeats on the finish, which is broad and seductively sweet. This is already highly appealing but there's plenty of material too; I'd give it at least another five years in the cellar.

    International Wine Cellar

    Ripened to scents of figs and dark chocolate, this opulent blend of cabernet sauvignon (75 percent) topped off with merlot fills the mouth with massive depths of flavor. The tannins layer sweet chocolate over savory nuttiness. Drink in the winter with foie gras on toast.
