A deep red, with a ruby rim, aromas of nutmeg and red pepper merge nicely with notes of violets and sweet spices. The palate is intense, with smooth, friendly tannins and pleasing, wellbalanced acidity that leads to a refreshing finish.

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vina Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago, Chile. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of his family to lead this historic estate. Eduardo has overseen the modernization of its winemaking technology while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Errazuriz has earned a reputation as one of the premier estates in Chile. Its philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, “From the best land, the best wine.” As an estate winery, Errazuriz strives to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to harvesting by hand, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on delicate handling, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion that has made Errazuriz such an internationally respected producer.
Technical notes
(90% Carmenere/10% Petit Verdot). The vineyard is located in the Aconcagua Valley, planted mainly on alluvial soil. The grapes were hand-picked, crushed and fermented in stainless steel. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out with twice daily pump overs. Because the grapes are from different blocks of the same vineyard, postfermentation maceration time varied from 10-26 days depending on the development of each lot. Aged for eight months in neutral French and American oak.
