WE 92

With brick-colored edges and gritty aromas of turned earth, raw oak, asphalt and berry fruits, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot feels tight, with rubbery tannins. Oak-infused flavors of herbal blackberry, mint and anise finish with notes of licorice and chocolate as well as a touch of heat. Drink through 2021.

The 2015 Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend with 15% Carménère, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc from Panquehue. It fermented in small stainless steel vats and matured in French oak barrels (68% new) for 22 months, including malolactic. This has to be the most elegant version of this cuvée that I tasted, with even a lighter structure than the cooler 2014, and there's also a little more acidity. The texture is seamless, and the balance between fruit, tannins and acidity is superb. This is a superb Bordeaux blend.

An elegant and rich-tasting red, full of concentrated red plum, cherry and currant flavors, backed by suave, medium-grained tannins. The finish offers a caressing palate of lush spice, cocoa powder and cream nuances. Drink now through 2024. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
