    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: The color is intense and the density is readily apparent.

    Aroma: The bouquet provides an explosion of red fruit, blackberry, black cherry and vibrant notes of raspeberry. The oak aging contributes a toasted vanilla and balsamic-like element in the nose. Then, instead of dispersing, all the scents blend together to give greater complexity, precious wood and cedar notes.

    Flavor: In the mouth, the first impression is density and volume. The wine is round, full and very concentrated. Slowly, a gentle tannic structure appears which provides the wine with a solid and well-structured character. The finish is long, velvety and silky.

    "Once again, arguably the best wine in Chile is this beauty from what may eventually become recognized as a world-class site for red wines—the dry-farmed, old-vines Apalta Vineyard. Fermentation involving big wood vats and the utmost in human attention yields a pure, stately wine that's equal parts power and finesse. Blendwise, it's mostly Merlot, and the flavors are all about kirsch, plum liqueur and chocolate. Give it several years to fully blossom."
    -Wine Enthusiast Top 100

    Critical Acclaim:

    This shows a beautiful balance of fruit with licorice, blackberries and hints of mineral. Just a touch of plum jam too. Full body, silky tannins and a gorgeous finish. It's drinking so beautifully now. Fabulous. A blend of 65% carmenere, 22% cabernet sauvignon and 13% malbec.
