VIK 2012 Millahue Chile
95 Points James Suckling - Plenty of plum and berry aromas with hints of white chocolate and almonds. Full to medium body, vibrant acidity and polished, silky tannins. Intense, flavorful finish. A vivd red that needs two or three years to come together. Beauty.
93 Points Decanter - VIK is a boutique family operation in the Cachapoal Valley that produces seriously well made and enjoyable wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère blend - with a dash of Merlot and Syrah - is a prime example. Remarkably, this was also their first vintage. Having been aged in French barriques for 24 months, this is full, ripe and rich without being overwrought. The interplay of dark plum and blueberry fruits with notes of camphor and fennel seed is both seductive and compelling. Drinking Window 2019 - 2027
92 Points Wine Enthusiast - Earthy foresty aromas of cool damp earth and olive are as prominent as this blend's berry scents. A ripe smooth saturated palate reflects a warm vintage, while this deals herbal notes of tea and pepper along with berry and plum fruit. Mint and spice flavors play leading roles on a savory well-oaked finish. Drink through 2021.
92 Points Wine Spectator - A ripe and fleshy red, with flavors of dark currant, dried berry and roasted plum that are framed by Asian spice notes. Baker's chocolate details show on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Vik 2012 has characteristics similar to the great wines of Bordeaux, but with more freshness, more fruit, more dynamic with high precision of tannins without excess.
Very bright and deep ruby red. Red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) in perfect harmony with secondary aromas from the barrel. The wood perfectly respects the evolution of the aromas of the wine. A balanced wine that is very subtle with a great aromatic freshness. A fresh attack, silky, very thin, with elegant and round tannins with long persistence. A very elegant well-balanced wine.
Blend: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carménère, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 2% Syrah
