Cabernet Sauvignon: 73% Carménère: 22% Cabernet Franc: 4% Merlot: 1% with 18 Months in new French oak.
Deep, intense, ruby red colour with purple tones. The nose is pure, well focused and elegant. Complex and layered, it reveals fresh and delicate aromas of cassis, black berries and violet, associated to fine notes of vanilla, cacao, liquorice, and spices. The wine is filling the mouth with smooth, well refined and juicy tannins, underlining the plenitude of the ripe fruit. The texture is incredibly round and silky, and the finish is long and fleshy. A superb wine, precise in its character, accessible and remarkably balanced.
2009 was a generous year marked by a normal rainfall in winter (312 mm in Puente Alto), a nice spring, a number of bunches higher than usual, a perfect flowering and berry setting, a typical hot and dry summer with the heat of the days always moderated by the cold of the nights, and finally a great quality of fruit, fully ripe, healthy and juicy, with an exceptional smoothness of tannins.
