More information on wine critics and ratings

Ruby-red in colour with an intense, attractive nose where black fruits such as blueberries and blackberries predominate, complemented by elegant notes of black pepper and a bit of smoke.

The robust palate has a level of acidity that lends freshness and elegance.

Meaty flavours and ripe fruit such as black cherries, blackberries, and plum combine with sweet flavours contributed by the oak.

The finish is sweet and long, with excellent soft tannins.

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

Ripe berry, raisin, prune, chocolate and cool earth aromas make for a fine nose. This is full and rich, a bit chunky, but not too heavy. Flavors of coconut are backed by blackberry fruit; on the finish, that oaky coconut character transitions to vanilla. Drink through 2022.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2013)
The 2013 La Cumbre is produced from selected grapes from the Don Maximiliano Vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley and from the Manzanar Vineyard in the cooler Aconcagua Costa; it fermented by individual lot in stainless steel and was raised in French oak for up to two years before blending and bottling. It's still very young and feels marked by the élevage, with plenty of spicy and smoky aromas; it is quite varietal with smoked bacon and violets with a lactic touch and some tar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, quite juicy, round and fleshy, with powerful flavors and good acidity. With time it reveals the cool vintage with some herbal (raspberry leaf) notes. 11,388 bottles produced.

Decanter (DCT) : 92 Points (2013)
Silky and creamy layers of vanilla oak and rich plum aromas, while the palate is rich with spiced clove and blackberry.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2010)
A subtle and fascinating wine with with clove, dark berry, orange peel, jalapeno and other citrus fruit. Full body, with fine tannins and long finish. Balanced and stylish with a delicious finish. A blend of syrah from the estate and another vineyard on the coast

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 93 Points (2009)
May/June '12. By Josh Raynolds. Opaque purple. An exotic, heady bouquet evokes dark berry liqueur, Moroccan spices and incense, plus a sexy vanilla nuance. Juicy, penetrating black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are given spine by zesty acidity and expand across the palate. Very suave and seamless syrah, with excellent finishing clarity and length and alluring sweetness.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2009)
This dark yet expressive red offers a rich core of roasted plum, macerated fig and game notes supported by finely textured tannins that lift the broad finish as hints of tar and spice box linger. Drink now through 2018.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2008)
Tasted Oct 2012 - Very dark crimson. Leather and liquorice on the nose. Interesting top notes. Well balanced with the merest hint of greenness on the finish (Carmenère? Petit Verdot?) The most obviously Chilean so far. Very gentle. Already quite evolved. Beautifully made. Drier than some.
