More information on wine critics and ratings

Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon has a bright ruby red colour and an expressive nose that showcases fresh red fruit and a hint of mint, all nicely complemented by notes of dried fruit and a subtle touch of sweet spices. Light balsamic touches enhance the complexity even more.

Velvety on the palate, this wine starts out friendly but firm, with fine tannins and flavours that reiterate the wine's aromatic profile of dominant fresh red and black fruit accompanied by hazelnuts and sweet spices.

The wine's excellent acidity foretells its great cellaring potential.

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

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2016)
Lots of currants, cocoa and hazelnut character, but something earthy and an interesting dusty element at the full, dry finish mean it's not just another big cabernet. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2016)
Spicy berry-fruit aromas are friendly, with oak poking through. Racy acidity makes this lively at the edges, but there's healthy fruit in the middle. Flavors of boysenberry, cola and allspice finish light, which is fitting for this cool, rainy, challenging vintage.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2015)
The 2015 Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from their estate vineyards in the interior of the Aconcagua Valley, cropped from an early, warm and dry year. The wine matured in French oak barrels, 25% of them new, for 12 months before bottling. The wine is impeccable, with a nice Cabernet structure, and in fact it feels like a much more expensive wine. It has a slightly commercial profile, but it's less sweet and has a lot less oak than before. The price is a steal. The palate is vivacious and has a very good finish and a notable absence of menthol or eucalyptus, very clean and with focused fruit. 662,400 bottles were produced and bottled in six different lots from the same blend.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2014)
With its menthol aromas, a silky smooth texdture, rich, ripe flavors and a slightly herbal finish, this is a fine Chilean cabernet and a perfect match for roast leg of lamb. Best Buy.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2012)
May/June '15. By Josh Raynolds. Saturated ruby. Sexy smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of cherry and dark berry liqueur are complemented by a building floral quality. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of rose pastille. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the finish, which lingers with very good spicy persistence. -- Josh Raynolds
