Winemaker Notes

The winemaking team worked in the vineyards in search of different aspects for each variety. These were thought of as parts of a complex wine, in such a way that the total is more than the sum of the parts. The location of the vineyards, the age of the plants, the viticultural program and the irrigation schedules, all worked towards the same goal. Once in the winery, each variety underwent primary fermentation in a small... View More

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Quimera is a multi-regional blend of 38% Malbec, 24% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 14% Cabernet Franc aged for 12 months in 40% new French oak before bottling without fining or filtration (as were all of these wines). Purple-colored, it displays an expressive perfume of cedar, scorched earth, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Medium- to full-bodied, this mouth-filling blend is sweetly fruited, complex, layered, and rich. It will continue to blossom for another 2-3 years and drink well through 2022.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Racy and pure, with creamy raspberry and boysenberry fruit that's nicely driven from behind by graphite and spice notes. The long, lingering finish lets a black tea note chime in. Delicious. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2011. 5,280 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast

Big, chunky and dark on the bouquet, but not overly fruity and definitely not sweet and raisiny smelling. The palate on this four-grape, Malbec-led blend is robust and forward in acidity, thus the fruit flavors run fast and fresh, with a toasty, lively finish. Juicy, tight and doesn’t wobble. Structured.
