Reviews and Ratings

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Deep dark cherry red with blue tones. Expressive and intense, stands out its berries aromas, as blueberry, blackberry and strawberry, along with notes of cherry, bitter chocolate, black pepper and some fine herbs as mint and lavender. Great personality and structure, ripe, firm tannins, concentrated body and long persistence, leaving an aftertaste full of fruity and spicy notes. Special wine to match with ripe cheese, grilled meats, mostly with all kind of rich and spicy food.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur de cerise avec des teintes bleues. Arômes de baies comme les bleuets, les mures et les fraises ainsi que les touches de cerises, de chocolat amer, de poivre noir et de fines herbes comme la menthe et la lavande. Belle personnalité et structur

This full-bodied Chilean red wine offers billowing aromas of vanilla smoke, toasty oak spice and black fruit. Smooth tannins make for a velvet texture. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
