Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts James Suckling
A stylish red with subtle and complex aromas and flavors of spice, meat, berry and bark. Full body, bright and fresh. Shows tension and beauty. Fascinating. This is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 30% cabernet franc and 20% syrah.

Opaque ruby. Ripe blueberry, cherry and cassis on the powerful nose, joined by a smoky nuance and a hint of vanilla as the wine opens up. Smooth, smoky and concentrated, offering black and blue fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of cracked pepper, mocha and licorice. Finishes sweet and impressively long, with a spicy jolt of cracked pepper, repeating smokiness and supple tannins coming in late.
91 pts Wine Enthusiast
Earthy, stalky aromas of tomato, olive and savory, meaty berry fruits set up a chewy, dense palate. Blackberry, cassis and mixed-spice flavors finish with chocolate and clove notes. This Cabernet-led blend is bold, oaky, rustic and powerful.



Winemaker Notes

Black fruit notes such as blackberry and black cherry; floral notes such as violets; spicy notes of white pepper and also subtle aromas of black olive. On the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon from the El Mirador series reects the soil characteristics, with a pronouncedattack, aromas of cherry, blackcurrant (and an important sand presence). And also it has great structure (round tannins present) given by the presence of sharp stones and gravel. Flavorsome onthe palate, balanced and with good persistence (volcanic soil minerality gives for good persistence on the palate). The soil where the Syrah is located, gives for full-bodied, velvety wines (clay presence), with good persistence and a degree of minerality. Inour view, the Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc varieties have contributed considerably.
