Deep ruby red in color, the nose displays intense and fresh aromas of red and black fruits accompanied by lightly spicy notes such as black pepper as well as dill and a hint of mint. The palate offers good structure and body with a juicy sensation attributed to the freshness of its acidity. Intense fruit flavors and fine, polished tannins not only make this a very pleasing wine to drink, but one that is easy to pair with a variety of foods as well.
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vina Errazuriz in 1870 in the Valle de Aconcagua, 62 miles north of the capital city, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, 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, his descendents strive to build on his legacy, locating ideal vineyard sites, planting new varieties and realizing techniques to capture the Aconcagua Valley's perfect conditions.
