Wine & Spirits 90 pts: "This wine’s red fruit has a lean intensity, refreshingly cool, with juicy cherry and cranberry flavors. Scents of violets, tobacco and herbs last with the fruit. A bright cabernet for herb-roasted lamb."
Central Valley, Chile
The 2018 harvest began a little later than normal due to a cold and rainy spring followed by a temperate summer. High temperatures in March and April allowed the fruit to finish ripening and also helped compensate for the late start on the harvest, which ended in early May. The quality was very good, and despite yields that were higher than expected, the wines have good aromatic intensity and acidity as well as the proper volume, character, freshness, and rounded tannins.
Wine Spectator 91 pts: "A minty aroma accents the concentrated red fruit and spice flavors, flanked by dried green herbal notes. Minerally midpalate, with a crunchy, fresh-tasting finish. Drink now through 2023."
