Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2012)
The 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 5% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. This is hand sorted, removing anything that could impart green flavors, with a cold soak of seven to ten days at eight Celsius with a daily remontage, the fruit covered in dry ice to prevent oxidation. The malolactic is in tank as Andres van Rensberg vigorously eschews brettanomyces. It has a very composed bouquet with black fruit, melted tar with cracked black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, quite austere in style with a cedar and sandalwood tinged finish.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2009)
May/June '15. By Stephen Tanzer. Good full, deep red. Deep, complex, moderately herbaceous nose melds plum, mocha, woodsmoke, truffle, cedar chips and herbs. The wine's deep, rich, thick fruit shows an almost syrupy character, but peppery herbs keep the palate firm and fresh. Finishes with substantial but beautifully refined tannins and outstanding energy and depth.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16+ Points (2009)
Tasted June 2012 - A leafier and more vegetal style than the 2010. Chocolate, grainy tannins. Smoky. Lacking a bit of veneer. (RH)

Vinedos de Alcohuaz Tococo Syrah 2015
Tococo isn’t just the name of this 100% Syrah wine’s single vineyard, but also of a unique bird that inhabits the Elqui Valley. Quick and unusually terrestrial, the Tococo is one of few species which prefers to run than to fly, which is why it can be seen darting from vineyard to vineyard all through Alcohuaz.
