98 Points James Suckling - Sweet blackberries, brambleberries and cigar tobacco with fresh flowers. Some cedar and mahogany, too. Full bodied with chewy tannins and chocolate, walnut and lightly toasted flavors. It’s just starting to come around. First commercially released wine from old-vine cabernet sauvignon, grown on its own rootstock with the vast majority from 1910. Originally it was just for the owners to drink. Fantastic. 12,000 bottles made.

96 Points Decanter - A brand new wine created by Andrea León and Charles de Bournet from a parcel of century-old vines directly planted in the poor soils of Apalta, this is a tribute to the French spirit of the winery that takes full advantage of the quality of Cabernet from the region. Complex aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, sweet spices and tobacco are followed by a good body, precise acidity, fine tannins and a liquorice aftertaste.

Winemaker Notes - A beautiful deep red ruby color. Elegant and complex nose, opening towards intense fruit with herbs and spices, with elegant and well-integrated oak to finish. Classic structure, with elegant and long tannins, with more flavors of fruit and black spices. Long lasting finish, with a velvety aftertaste.

“Arguably from the oldest ungrafted Cabernet in the world!” Jim Giffin
