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 ... I tasted some wines from Echeverría that looked too young for their age, but I Iiked the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Edition, which mixes fruit from Curicó and Maipo; curiously enough it reminded me of the light from Cachapoal. Anyway, it's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Syrah and 5% Carménère. It's balsamic with notes of thyme and rosemary, and a core of black currants and dark cherries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with fine, polished tannins and enough acidity. This is ready now."
