In 2012 the Rojas family partnered with the Huneeus family, proprietors of Quintessa, to bring this hidden gem to the United States.
The winery only produces this one wine, just like Quintessa. It’s simply the best expression of a tremendous vineyard producing a wine “so explosive with fruit” that is “full-bodied”, “super-structured”, and “very reserved” per James Suckling.
These Cabernet and Carmenere vines, from pre -phylloxera cuttings, imported from Bordeaux have produced high quality fruit since their first harvest in the early 1890’s. These old gnarly vines produce extremely small berries, yielding minimal yet overly powerful fruit not found anywhere else in the world.
“This is so explosive with fruit, yet very reserved and vibrant at the same time, displaying black olives, tar, cedar, blackberries and spices. Full-bodied with super structured tannins and agile fruit, rounded off by mineral undertones. Drink in 2020” (JS 96)
