This bright and brooding red blend shows the true potential of the Maule and Itata valleys.
Bright yet brooding. Up front, it is all fresh and expressive red berries. Then, on the palate, you find touches of herbs and cocoa. It finishes with bright cherry and vivacity.
It has the backbone for a pairing with grilled meats from lamb to steaks, but would shine with slow-cooked short ribs.
The 2014 Facundo is a red blend made with the same grapes from Maule, Itata and Colchagua. This is nicely textured and very integrated and has a lively palate with great freshness and acidity, fine, chalky tannins and a dry, fresh finish.The Wine Advocate October 2018
A bright and very fine blend of carignan, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and petit verdot. Shows precision and passion. Medium-to-full body, fine and polished tannins and a dark berry and mineral undertone. Drink or hold.James Suckling March 2018
Ripe black fruit aromas are tarry and lean toward prune on a nose that falls squarely on the dark end of the aromatic spectrum. A muscular palate is tannic and blazing with tartaric acid, which makes this Cabernet-led blend robust and fruit forward. Rubbing tannins create roughness on a powerful finish.Wine Enthusiast July 2019
