wine spectator 89 pts"Fleshy, with a tannic backbone to the dried plum, raspberry and dark currant flavors. Bittersweet chocolate notes show midpalate, leading to dusty overtones on the spicy finish. Syrah, Carmenère, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. - KM"

iwinereview"This blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Carmenere, 10% Petit Verdot, and 10% Cabernet Franc reveals abundant fresh blackberry and black cherry with nuances of underbrush and tobacco. It’s a complete wine of good weight and concentration, a firm backbone, and rich flavors that persist from beginning to a protracted end. Outstanding for the price."

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"

bti"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."

2013 Siegel Reserve Red Blend 1234 - 88 PTS - WINE VALUE - WA

wa88"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."

vinous logo 250"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"

wa90"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"
