Winemaker's Notes
"Deep red colour. This rich and unique wine is full of concentrated aromas. Juicy fruits like cherries, blackberries and plums are highlighted by notes of black pepper and spices. A dash of menthol and dark chocolate add complexity to the palate. Round and well balanced, this wine has a lengthy and generous finish."

Technical Notes
"All of the grapes for the Vina Echeverria Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon come from ungrafted, selected clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock. The grapes are hand picked and put in 18 kg boxes to be carried to the winery immediately after being cut. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks for eight to ten days with selected yeasts, and undergoes an extended skin maceration for an additional 10 – 15 days. It is aged in 225 liter French oak barrels for 18 months, blended, and returned to barrels for another six months."
Wine Advocate
"91 pts ... The 2009 Limited Edition is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon complemented with Carmenere and Syrah sourced from different valleys within Chile, with flowery notes of red fruit, roses and cherry juice, well-integrated oak and a medium-bodied palate with a silky texture, good acidity and freshness. It’s a pleasure to drink this wine. Drink now-2018."
