95 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate; 95 points, Tim Atkin; 96 points, Descorchados Magazine
This blend of 75% Carménère & 25% Cabernet Franc has pure and clean aromas, with a touch of complexity from the spiciness and graphite notes. On the palate, it is fresh and balanced. The tannins are silky and velvety, with a long, juicy and mineral finish that is influenced by the basalt rock. Made with organic grapes. Certified Biodynamic by Demeter. Aged 18 months in French oak.

Aromatic with rose, strawberry, raspberry and wild cherry flavors layered with hints of bay leaf, cinnamon and roasted tobacco in the background. Silky, yet with a solid structure supporting the flavors. Shows fine length and leaves a mouthwatering impression, with a soft bitterness in the final palate that reveals its volcanic origin. Made with organic grapes. Aged 18 months in foudres and concrete egg.
