"This blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and carmenere represents a selection of estate parcels at higher altitude. Very rich, attractively fresh dark plums and berries on the nose and palate. Such handsomely defined and complete structure. Impressive depth. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Winemaker Notes:
This wine perfectly combines the different areas of the Rosario estates in terms of climate and soil taking the best attributes of each vineyard. Fresh fruit aromatics of raspberry and cherry from the Cabernet Sauvignon, black fruit notes in the Syrah emanating from the cool waters of the Maipo river and floral and spice of violet and white pepper from the Cabernet Franc and Carmenere combine to produce an intoxicating blend of flavor and aroma.

The wine has a ripe fruit profile style with fresh and spicy notes and specially wild aromas from the organic management that we do. The mouth is soft and with minerals tannis and both things are due to the Mediterranean macro-climate with a fresh meso-climate (high influence from the Maipo river and fresh winds) and finally the soil is volcanic with high content of minerals and high percentage of angular rocks.

Pair with rich hearty beef and game dishes are enhanced when paired with this robust and rich wine. Pair this wine with full flavored rich dishes that need a worthy accompaniment.
