94% Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere 3% and 3% Petite Verdot. The grapes come from old vineyards planted in the alluvial terraces of the Alto Maipo, extremely concentrated, and were handpicked.  ..aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. “It has an intense and deep ruby red color. The nose has aromas of currants, blackberries, sweet licorice and cedar notes that become soft and elegant. The palate is generous and rich yet fresh and vibrant again. The wine has plenty of fruit and firm tannins that give structure and depth.
Winemaker
 
Mild aromas of flower, mineral and herbs.  Ripe black cherry and plum fruit with lots of rustic tannin and medium acid on the moderate length finish.
