Description

River bench associated soils, deep alluvial clay loam. The clays provide great water retention that contributes to good grape ripening. The retention characteristics are perfect for controlling plant growth.



Climate

:Subhumid mediterranean. Hot days give way to cold nights. The influence of the Cachapoal river reduces nocturnal summer temperatures, which slows the ripening of the grapes.



Aging

:Aged in French oak barrels for 17 months (80% in new barrels, 20% in one year old

barrels).

Harvest

:Hand picked. May 4 -17th, 2006.



Top 100 N - 92 points Wine Spectator - Dark in profile, with plum and currant fruit, but very pure, with silky

tannins and a long, stylish finish that lets incense, spice and mineral

notes play out. Deftly done. Drink now through 2011.



Winemaker's notes

:Appearance: Bright

Colour: Dark and deep red with violet nuances.

Nose: Very elegant, complex, strong character of Carmenere, red ripe fruit, spicy with hints of tobacco.

concentrated. Dense, oily with lots of fruit giving a long finish.
