Natalie's Score: 88/100

This wine is made form organically grown grapes with just 6 mg/l of sulphur. Minty-medicinal notes on the nose followed by fleshy blackberry and cassis. Big and rich.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Carmen Nativa Single Vineyard Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenère that was aged in French oak for 10 months, has intense aromas of eucalyptus, blackberry, blackcurrant, oak and vanilla. It is a medium to full-bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, chalky mouth feel, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long, silky finish. It is a sipping wine, though can be enjoyed with food; drink now till 2020 – will benefit from more cellaring. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts (+1 evolution potential) – recommended for quality and taste. Tasted at Wines of Chile 2013 tasting in October/13 - http://grapeselections.com/wines-of-chile-2013/

Quite deep ruby in colour with a very pronounced classic Cabernet Sauvignon nose of cassis, eucalypt, olive, dusty earth, clove, orange zest and graphite. The palate is dry and full, with lots of acid and tannin structure and great intensity. Flavours of eucalypt, spice, coffee, graphite, minerals, raspberry, olive and the garrigue. Very long and complex with potential to develop for many years in bottle. Just completely eats up the 100% new oak and is a true reflection of the Maipo Alto terroir.
