iwinereview"This blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carmenere, and 20% Syrah is more than the sum of its parts. Opening with an emphatic perfume of cedar, cracked pepper and dark fruit, it offers a seamless mouth feel and deep, dense flavors. Fine grained tannins lend just the right amount of structure to this excellent Chilean red blend. Aged in French oak for 14-16 months."

tim atkin logo 250"Even at four years of age, this assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère from Los Lingues with 20% Syrah from Peralillo is dense, firm and well structured, needing more time in bottle for its tannins to soften. The underlying fruit is excellent 2020-28"

tim atkin logo 250"Alberto Siegel’s red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère from Los Lingues, with some Syrah grown at VIK. The result is a wonderfully polished cuvée, combining the texture and grassy notes of Carmenère with the dark berry fruit and structure of the other two varieties. 2018-25"

vinous logo"Dark ruby. Heady, spice-tinged dark berry preserve, incense and floral pastille scents show excellent clarity and a touch of mint in the background. In a suave, palate-coating style, displaying sweet black and blue fruit flavors and showing no excess weight. Picks up bitter chocolate and spicecake nuances on the gently tannic, expansive finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity. - Josh Raynolds""

"The blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carmenere and 20% Syrah is an expressive array of deep, black fruit and spice. A vein of chocolate sweetens violets petals and the texture and density of the wine is impressive to the finish. Aged in French oak for 14-16 months. A true-blue match with red meat. - Meridith May"

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Rustic aromas of baked berry fruits, black olive, herbs and eucalyptus lead to a forward, fairly tannic palate. An herbal flavor profile includes olive, blackberry, plum and spice notes, while the finish on this Cabernet-led blend tastes peppery and herbal, which is nothing unusual for Chile. Drink through 2020."

"wine enthusiast 91 ptsGritty, herbal, charred aromas of black fruits accented by juniper open this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah. Saturated, tight and tannic, with the potential to age and evolve, this offers flavors of blackberry, anise and both black and green pepper. An oaky, jagged feeling finish closes things out. Drink through 2020. - Michael Schachner"
