Reviews and Ratings

Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 90/100 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 outstanding wine is 100% pure cool-climate Syrah.
Deep ruby in color and a little subdued at first but as it evolved, spicy and earthy aromas emerged along with some dark chocolate, ripe brambleberry, crushed black peppercorns and roasting meats.
Dry, full, ample and intense on the palate. The aromas are well represented in this luscious, well-structured and succulent wine. Good tannins, fresh acidity and a persistent smoky finish.
This wine "could" be an ideal present… Drink now or put it away for at least 6-8 years.
Dare you to wait that long!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
