Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From Maipo Valley, Chile, this Cordillera de Los Andes offers rich aromas of blackberry, black tea, dark chocolate and leather. Full body with deep ruby color, the first sip Cordillera de Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 shows ripe blackberry, fern, chocolate, some soy sauce and earthy notes. Balanced and fruity, this Chilean wine will surprise by its lovely finish and easy approachability. Enjoy.

John Szabo, MS

Torres' special reserve cabernet sauvignon 2013 is a deep, dense, dark, satisfying mouthful of wine, over-delivering on depth and complexity at the price to be sure. It tastes like low-yielding, struggling vines (a good thing), with excellent concentration and natural balance. It's the sort of meaty wine you can really dig into, preferably at the table with some salty protein, not to say dry-aged, grilled rib-eye. Pour it blind and allow your friends to guess which high-end California bottling it might be, at three times + the price. Tasted January 2018. Value Rating: ***
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Concentrated, juicy and tart with a greenish bitterness on the finish. Plum, mint, tart blackberry. Pair with pepper steak or beef fajitas. Tasted 2013 pre-release after decanting Nov 2017. 88 points.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of black fruit and smoke with blackberry and eucalyptus flavors . The tannins were a bit tight so would benefit from a good decanting before serving.
