Tasting Notes

“Currants, flowers, sandalwood and crushed stone. Some cocoa. Medium to full body and linear, tight tannins. Bright and fresh. Energetic. Shows serious tension and focus. Excellent finish.”

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2019

“early picking and the gentle winemaking touch of Francisco Baettig have produced a wine of commendable focus and refinement. Marrying Cabernet Sauvignon with 33% divided between Malbec, Carmenère, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this has his classic aromas of Mediterranean herbs, plum, black cherry and cassis fruit, granular tannins and impressive palate length.”

Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, September 2019

“a classical Chilean Bordeaux blend—with notes of black fruit, cassis and blackberry, serious and with betterintegrated oak. They are very careful with the use of oak, using barrels that mark the wine less, especially in warm vintages, and using fewer new barrels. The wine has structure and tannin but also has the juiciness to balance it all”
