|Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 95/100 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
The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine hails from a 15 hectare property that used to be Mr. Chadwick’s father’s polo field. In contrast to some of the Errazuriz’s cool climate vineyards, Vinedo Chadwick vineyard has a Mediterranean climate and is located at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the Maipo Valley, one of Chile’s most classical wine region.
The wine is a deep ruby color with chunky inky legs running down the inside of the glass.
On the nose, it is vibrant and intense with rich aromas of currants, cacao powder, roses, freshly cut green bell peppers, vanilla and wet earth.
The palate is astonishing, juicy and sensual. Ample, dry with a sumptuous balance of acidity and tannins. Generous hints of cassis liqueur and the darkest most exquisite chocolate ending on a fine cigar smoky note.
