The 2001 Seña captures the essential elements of the Seña style: perfect balance, ripe fruit, complexity on the nose and elegance on the palate. A leafy, earthy fragrance provides a rich backdrop for the ripe cherry, blackberry and vanilla bean aromas. The fruit is spicy on the palate, with light herbal notes. Silky smooth tannins give the wine depth and length. Berry fruit and vanilla oak carry through on the soft finish.
Food Match: roasts, grilled meats, game, duck, beef.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Carmenere.
Big and woody on first blush, but relaxes to show clove, cinnamon and dry plum-like fruit. More spice and clove on the cedary palate, with a chewy, real-deal mouthfeel. Firm tannins and plenty of oak say lay this down for another couple of years. Not a monster fruit ball, but ample.
Originally part of a joint venture with Robert Mondavi, Seña is now (as of 2004) completely in the hands of the Chadwick family, owners of Errazuriz. This cabernet-based blend from vineyards in Panquehue opens with coffee and mint aromas, along with sweet cherry and cinnamon notes. As the wine breathes, the texture becomes more voluptuous and the flavors develop an earthy, meaty character.
