2009 Viña Maquis "Viola" Red Blend Colchagua Valley

SKU #1424478 91 points Vinous

 Dark, bright ruby. Potent smoke- and oak-spiced dark berries on the seductively perfumed, expansive nose. Sweet, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors pick up a suave floral pastille quality with aeration. This wine shows surprising energy and litheness for its heft and power, closing spicy and very long, with smooth tannins coming on late. (JR)  (5/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A refined style, with flavors of dark currant, raspberry and allspice that are lush and well-structured. Very creamy midpalate, featuring a finish loaded with cocoa powder and mocha notes. A big red that should match well with roasted meats. Drink now through 2020. (KM)  (5/2015)

Chile

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine.
