In the vanguard of a Chilean ‘cool climate’ Syrah revolution, this single vineyard wine displays a floral nose and a complex palate of black pepper, incense and lively red fruits. With its firm yet fine, ripe tannins, this wine will only increase in complexity and depth as it ages. A beguiling wine produced in very limited quantity.

I like the blackberry, black chocolate and dried meat character on the nose and palate. Flower too. Full body, agile and intense with spice and fresh fruit aftertaste. Very lively and beautiful.

Fabulous aromas of slate, rust, iron, and dried strawberries. Full body, firm tannins, wonderfully polished. Fine and caressing. Complex flavors too. A wonderful finish. Dusty texture as well. This is a small production wine from the family’s best vineyards of the Manzanar farm with pure slate soils.

“Even better than the debut and great 2014. Perfumed and vivid with strawberry, raspberry, flower leaf, cedar, stone and flint. Full body yet compacted and compressed giving it an ultra-fine palate profile. Tension and finesse. Light citrus finish. Polished to almost perfection. Seamless finish. 500 cases made. Drink now”

“Stunning aromas of blackcurrant, stone, blueberry and licorice. Also iodine. Floral. Perfumed. Full body, fantastic density of fruit and ripe tannins. It goes on for minutes on the palate with such energy and focus. Touch of chewiness on the finish. A complex and complete wine that delivers a generosity with firmness. Drink in 2021 but already a classic to drink”
