|Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870 and he was the first to plant French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley, Chile.
His initiative and creativity were handed down to future generations and, in just over a century, his descendants consolidated the winery and positioned their wines among the world’s most noteworthy.
Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the fifth generation of his family to lead this exceptional estate. An industrial engineer by profession, he joined the administration of Viña Errázuriz after graduating from University. He learned viticulture and winemaking from his father and later studied in Bordeaux.
Celebrating their 145th anniversary this year (2015), the future is looking bright for Errazuriz, even Mr. Robert Parker agrees: “In my opinion, what this estate will produce in the next twenty years will completely surpass the previous twenty years.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
This 100% Syrah comes from the cool climate of the Errazuriz’ Manzanar vineyards.
It is a deep ruby red color and displays thick inky legs in the glass.
On the nose, it is very fragrant and intense with aromas of candied blackberries & cherries, black wet earth and freshly ground black pepper corns.
On the palate, it is ample and beautiful. Dry with textured tannin and refreshing acidity, it has loads of juicy ripe red fruit, vanilla and minerallity.
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Deep, inky ruby. Intense aromas of dark chocolate, cedar, candied dark fruits and herbal undertones. Tightly knit, with tangy black fruit flavours and firm, grainy tannins. A full-bodied, moderately concentrated Syrah that would benefit from a couple of hours decanting before serving.
