Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This aromatic, mediumbodied wine hails from Chile's oldest winery, founded in 1850. Although Carmenère is indigenous to France, because of Chile's particularly long growing season, it grows extremely well there. It's a pretty deep ruby colour with lots going on in the glass; notes of dark berries, prunes, mocha, toast, nuts and honey. In a word, delicious! It's aromatic and medium bodied, with lively acidity and lots of juicy flavour right through to the finish.
It would pair well with spicy sausages, in case you're firing up the barbeque this weekend and it would equally well suit steak or leg of lamb. I just happened to have some dark chocolate on hand and discovered that this also paired very well! Will definitely buy this again.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
