96 pts Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards - Platinum Medal: Best Chilean Red Rhône Varietals over £15
Complex, beautiful nose displaying an array of fruity and savoury notes: red currants, dansoms and blackberries intermingle with smoked bacon, black olives, pepper and bay leaves. Flavoursome palate, bursting with black cherry fruit mixed with hints of vanilla and again some meaty, smoky swirls throughout. Amazingly compelling Syrah with a wild, savage character.
93 pts James Suckling
A rich and dense red with dried dark fruits such as blackberry and hints of strawberry. Full body, polished and firm tannins. So long and very intense. Need two or three years to soften. 300 cases made.
92 pts Vinous (JR)
- Inky ruby. Displays highly perfumed cassis, boysenberry, incense, bacon and violet scents that show excellent clarity and spicy lift. Densely packed, plush and energetic on the palate, offering deeply concentrated flavors of ripe black and blue fruits, spicecake and floral pastilles. Shows an appealing sweetness on the impressively persistent, seamless finish, which features interwoven tannins and a strong snap of smoky minerality.

A big rich and ripe red, with plenty of roasted plum, berry and dark cherry flavors that are layered with intense Asian spice notes. Accents of forest floor, bacon and dark chocolate show on the savory finish.
