Reviews and Ratings

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

From Maipo, Chile a full-bodied Cab Sauv with red berry nose and palate showing red berries, vanilla, mint, slight milk chocolate and cedar. Well-balanced and very enjoyable.
Tasted December 2015
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

While the 14% gives you a full bodied wine, the power of flavours is a touch less. The smoothness of this wine is it's stellar quality, with an allocation of fruit, and soft tannins.
This full-bodied Chilean red wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the cool climate of the Alto Maipo Valley (alto meaning high altitude). Amplus is a Latin word meaning important or honourable. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
