"Ruby red color, still very bright, deep. Red fruit aromas (strawberry, raspberry) in perfect harmony with the vanilla aromas of the wine. The wood respects perfectly the evolution of the wine aromas. A balanced wine that is very subtle with a big aromatic freshness. A highly fresh attack, silky, very thin with elegant tannins and long persistence and round tannins. A harmonious wine, balanced with an elegant persistence. Possessing the real pleasure of a Grand Vin de Bordeaux with the added pleasure of an exceptionally modern aromatic freshness. Presents with no excess and perfectly balanced. The tannins delicately complete the aromatic range. An exceptional wine close to the Bordeaux wine concept but more dynamic, with a larger aromatic range and fruitier but never with excess. We discover in this wine a multitude of perfumes." —winemaker

"This is a new wine playing at Chile’s high-priced, icon level. Fresh yet oaky on the nose, with aromas of herbs and char, this is layered, pure and smooth on the palate. Spice, oak and chocolate mix with berry and plum flavors, while the dry, long, oaky finish is on the money. Drink this well-crafted Cabernet blend through 2022." —Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"A powerful, plush and juicy red, with plenty of upfront, concentrated flavors of dark plum, dried blackberry and cherry tart that are accented by cream notes. A modern style, with a suave finish that offers cocoa powder and forest floor accents. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 2,000 cases made." —Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator
