"Opaque red. The 1234 Red Wine blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot displays a spicy, herbal nose and a velvet smooth feel in the mouth with good depth of flavor." - I-WineReview (November 2013), 90 pts
"This was my favorite of the group of wines I tasted from this producer in Chile. The 2012 Reserve Proprietary Red is a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Carmenère and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It boasts a dark ruby/plum/purple color as well as notes of raspberries, blackcurrants, baking spices, and a touch of background oak in a medium to full-bodied, beautifully complex, pure style. Savory and round with surprising density, this is a fabulous value to enjoy over the next 2-3 years. - Robert Parker" - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (November 2014), 90 pts
"Saturated ruby. Smoky aromas of dried cherry, cassis and game, with a peppery note adding lift. On the palate, bitter cherry and dark berry flavors are underscored by tangy acidity and complicated by smoked meat and succulent herb qualities. Gentle tannins shape the persistent, smoky finish. - Josh Raynolds"
"An intriguing wine is the 2013 Proprietary Red Reserve 1234, which is an assemblage of 50% Syrah, 30% Carmenère and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This wine offers up loads of loamy soil nuances intermixed with blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, new saddle leather and floral notes, with baking spices also making an appearance. This opaque ruby/purple wine is another terrific value and, moreover, should drink well for another 3-4 years." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (March 2016), 88 pts - Excellent Wine Values for Under $25
"Dark ruby black color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of pressed flowers and cedar bark, grilled peppers and beets, spiced berries, and chocolate with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a silky, breezy cherry pit, honey roasted carrot, nuts, and cedar mulch finish with crunchy tannins and light oak. A solid Chilean red blend that will shine at the table." - Beverage Testing Institute (August 31st 2016), 87 pts Silver Medal - Highly recommended - Best Buy
"Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and black currant aromas are complemented by suggestions of vanilla and woodsmoke. Peppery spice and violet pastille qualities emerge with aeration, along with a subtle olive nuance. Shows good energy on a long, juicy finish that features gentle tannins and lingering smokiness. - Josh Raynolds" - Vinous (February 2017), 90 pts
