    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 94 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    Vina Maquis Lien is a blend of Syrah, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes, resulting in a disinctive wine that reflects the special plot of land the Hurtado Vicuna family owns in the Colchagua Valley in Chile.

    The vineyards and winery are located at the confluence of two historic rivers, the Chimbarongo and the Tinguiririca, which brought down from the Andes sediments that established teh vineyard's alluvial soils, and channel cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean, contributing to the richness and fruitiness of the wines.

    Ricardo Rivadeneira Hurtado and his team pride themselves in creating such a generous red wine full of character and a sense of place.

    Blend: 50% Syrah, 23% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec

    In Chile's native Mapuche language, lien means "silver metal"—a reference to colonial Spanish coins that were once melted to make fine jewelry, like the lizard on the Maquis label.

    I served this wine for friends during a little wine and cheese evening. Maquis is gorgeous. Smooth finish and very complex. I would definitely buy this again. Not overly acidic or fruity.
