More information on wine critics and ratings

A deep, intense reddish-violet colour. The nose offers aromas of spice and black fruit intermingled with notes of black pepper, tobacco, and roasted red pepper, resulting in a highly complex blend.

The palate unfolds with subtle notes of truffle,cocoa, and toasted coffee accompanied by smooth, voluminous tannins, giving this wine a great structure that fills the palate, creating a beautiful balance of fruit and oak.

A wine with great depth and an incredible, prolonged finish.

Origins The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives… Read more

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 100 Points (2010)
This absurdly priced Carmenère is always one of Chile's best, and this vintage is just fine, with cherry, cassis, graphite, herb and eucalyptus-like green aromas. The palate is chunky and round in feel, with solid acidity and plump, herbal flavors of berry fruits, olive and spice. But what justifies a $235 price tag? You can be the judge.

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2010)
A round and juicy red with dried berry, floral petal and hints of stone. Full body, soft and silky tannins. Bright fruit and a clean, chewy finish. Yet shows lots of tension and excitement. A blend of 96% carmenere and 4% petit verdot. Drink now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 93 Points (2010)
Inky purple. Exotic spice- and smoke-accented black and blue fruits on the nose. Lush, palate-coating licorice and dark fruit compote flavors are complicated by notes of black tea and bitter chocolate. Sweet, pliant tannins add gentle grip to the plush, seamless, extremely long finish. Year in and out this is Chile's finest example of carmenere.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2010)
The 2010 Kai is the purest Carmenere to date (96%) and the first to employ 90% new oak instead of 100%. It has ripe vanilla-y oak on the nose, but good delineation with layers of primal plum and cassis fruit. The palate is sweet and grippy on the entry with powerful black fruit laced with dark chocolate and a touch of mint. There is good weight and greater symmetry than the 2009. The finish has fine tension: reserved and masculine. Excellent. Drink now-2018.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2010)
Rich and inviting, with fresh acidity supporting the layers of linzer torte, plum sauce and mocha notes, as fine tannins frame the long finish of spice, toasty oak and iron. Drink now through 2018.
