Errazuriz Villa Don Maximiano 2017

Product description

Villa Don Maximiano is the second wine from Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve, inspired by the villa built by the founder in the Aconcagua Valley in 1870.

A reflection of years of learning, it is a blend made from Bordeaux and Mediterranean varieties, with a contemporary personality and character and excellent ageing potential.

Composition: 28% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 17% Cabernet Franc, 10% Mourvedre

Further back some nice notes of cocoa and clove appear, culminating with a slight floral hint that reminds of violets.  Aligned with what is perceived on the nose, the palate offers cherries, raspberries and cassis flavors, plus the sweet notes of cocoa and clove.  Of a wide entrance, it is a generous wine, with good tension and juiciness that provide freshness, framed by mature tannins that marvelously surround the mouth, along with a long and very pleasant persistence.

94 Points - James Suckling

Beautiful aromas of currants, coffee and dried flowers.  Full body, round and juicy tannins with berry, chocolate and light vanilla undertones.  Delicious finish.
