Deep, intense and attractive ruby red color. The bouquet is pure and forward, revealing clean aromas of blackberries, blackcurrant and licorice, associated with subtle notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, incense and spices.
The mouth feel is generous with round, concentrated and refined tannins, underlining a plenitude of ripe fruit. The wine is polished, elegant and focused, ending in a long, dense and fleshy finish. The overall result is a complex and powerful wine, persistent, layered and well balanced.

The vintage was dry, with only 200 mm of rainfall between May through October in Puente Alto, which was two-thirds of a typical year.

With September being warmer than usual, bud break occurred earlier for Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carménère. However, the lower temperatures in October resulted in a delayed bud break for the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Summer was hot, dry and warmer than the previous two years, with veraison occurring 10 days earlier than normal. March was particularly hot, with the average maximum temperature among the highest historical figures.

Understandably, the harvest started two weeks earlier than usual. It began on March 15th for the first Merlot and ended on May 18th for the last Carménère. However, most of the Cabernet Sauvignon was picked under lower temperatures, from April 17th through May 14th, as well as for the Carménère from May 8th through 18th.

All of these peculiar conditions favored a great and healthy quality of fruit, with optimal levels of ripeness, concentration and purity.
