De Martino "Vigno" Dry-Farmed Maule Valley Carignan 2013

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $44.99!
96 Wine Advocate
(12/2015) "The 2013 Vigno Single Vineyard La Aguada is part of the Vigno association of producers of Carignan (Cariñena) from the Maule Valley. The wine is produced from a field blend from an ungrafted, dry farmed, head-pruned old vineyard called La Aguada in Sauzal. The secret here is to mature the wine in large volume oak containers, something they are doing with all of their top wines that has worked really well. 2013 is a year with better natural acidity than previous years, while alcohol levels were moderate, yields were naturally high and they had to work to contain them. The grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts and the wine matured in 5,000-liter oak foudres for two years. This is a wine of character, the nose has a special freshness and incipient complexity for such an early age; there are aromas of bacon, tree bark, wild berries and a pinch of spices. The palate is medium-bodied with refined, ultra-polished tannins that give elegance to that internet rusticity, while at the same time it is restrained with a certain austerity. I've had this wine at least four times and it's quite a chameleon, sometimes showing itself more like a Syrah, sometimes it felt more Cariñena and it was always ever changing in the glass. There is a lot of complexity, and even if sometimes I felt like there was a lack of typicity, my final conclusion is that the field blend has to be the reason for such complexity and changing personality. For now, this is certainly world-class Cariñena, and among the best wines produced in Chile. Well done! An open bottle evolved nicely during the course of three days, which gives an indication of a robust wine resistant to oxidation, which I think should also evolve nicely and slowly in bottle."

Vina Aquitania "Reserva" Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
((11/2016) "(aged for eight months in a 50/50 combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels) Bright violet. Peppery blackberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied rose and tobacco. Juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors put on weight and turn sweeter with air while maintaining vivacity. Finishes energetic and appealingly sweet, featuring harmonious tannins and very good, spicy persistence."

Koyle "Gran Reserva" Colchagua Carmenere 2012

91 James Suckling
90 Wine Enthusiast
(8/1/2015) "Earthy berry aromas are typical of good Carmenère, meaning they are lightly herbal, spicy and a touch savory. This is a ripe specimen from a hot year, so it's plump and creamy in weight. Flavors of blackberry, fig and chocolate are lightly herbal, while the finish is smooth and generous."

(8/28/2015) "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Estate, from their vineyards in Huelquén in the Maipo Andes zone, is complemented by 5% Carménère and 2% Syrah; these grapes and percentages change with the vintage, but the 'varietal' wines are never pure. It fermented in stainless steel with remontage, and aged in used French and American oak barrels for one year. 2013 was much cooler than 2012, producing higher yields and the wine is fresher, and dare I say it, more fluid and mineral, very balanced. The palate is very tasty, with some herbal notes and very good acidity, very savory and supple. Very good value and readily available, as 825,000 bottles were produced."
