More information on wine critics and ratings

Beautiful deep purplish-red in colour, this wine opens with notes of sweet spice and a bit of chocolate, followed by a layer of black fruit that builds alongside varietal notes that recall black pepper, soy sauce, and roasted red pepper.

Flavourful and intense on the palate, with excellent typicity and notes of smooth tobacco and graphite on the finish.

Balanced texture with firm, sweet tannins and refreshing acidity that foretells its excellent 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.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2016)
Let yourself be seduced by the delicate spice and forest berry fruits of this wine. Very good concentration and some real finesse in this medium-to-full carmenere. The finish is long and lively. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2016)
Ripe black fruit aromas offer a balsamic side note, while an intense palate is hardwired and firm, with spiced plum, cherry and peppery flavors. Heat and plenty of spice are in prime time on an untamed finish.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
Deep, ripe and loamy, offering flavors of roasted plum, mocha and blackberry that lengthen out nicely. Creamy midpalate, with chocolate and spice details. Drink now through 2020.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2013)
Opaque ruby. Smoky cherry, cassis and dried rose on the pungent nose. A suggestion of mint comes up with air and adds an edge to the wine's fleshy dark fruit flavors. Dusty tannins give shape to the finish, which lingers with very good spicy persistence. I'd have guessed that there was some Cabernet in here.

Robert Parker (RP) : 88 Points (2012)
The 2012 Max Reserva Carmenere seems to be a little riper than the 2011, and somehow misses some punch, as the palate feels flatter. Yes, the herbal, spicy tones are there, but the wine is less vibrant. Drink now.

A seductively perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums and subtle spicy clove notes on the nose. The wine is enhanced by an elegant and refined concentrated palate displaying richness and generosity. The complex palate is layered and balanced, complemented by fine silky tannins, all hallmark traits of minimalist winemaking.
