Superb aromas of black currants, rose petal and mint. Lavender and stones too. Full body with incredible fruit density. Complex, yet it's agile and bright. Tannins are perfectly polished.

Tannins are perfectly polished. It builds on the palate and shows the structure of a first growth Bordeaux but remains so Chilean. A blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon, 15% carmenere, 12% malbec, 10% merlot, and 5% petit verdot. From biodynamically grown grapes. This is a joy to taste now but it will show itself in 2019. Even better than the amazing 2012.

The 2013 Seña might very well be their finest vintage to date. 2013 was a cool vintage that favored fresh flavors and elegant and pure wines full of nuances. At Viña Seña, they took advantage of the natural conditions and produced a stunning blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carménère, 12% Malbec, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, sourced from their 42 hectares of vineyards planted some 16 years ago in the Aconcagua Valley. The varietal mix has been fine tuned and the oak has also been gradually reduced during the last few years. The process was pretty straightforward, fermentation in stainless steel and aging in French oak barrels (75% of them new) for 22 months. It has a subtle nose with aromas of red and black fruit denoting very good freshness, and the classical tobacco and cracked peppercorns, with the oak nicely integrated adding some spices and faint smoky aromas. The red fruit is remarkable and really adds freshness. Linear, juicy, sharp and long, very tasty and with very fine, slightly grainy tannins. There is superb balance, classical proportion and symmetry. I have not tasted all of the vintages of Seña (one day...), but out of all the years I've tried, this is certainly the best. I'm sure this will bloom in bottle and will have a long development. - Luis Gutierrez

A vibrant red, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, cherry, mocha and dark currant that are well-structured, featuring pure-tasting minerality. Notes of dried herb emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2019. – KM

Dark purple, almost black at the core with a light purple rim. Aromas of blackberry and black cherry mix with hints of mint, pencil lead and tobacco leaf on a compelling nose.

Aromas of blackberry and black cherry mix with hints of mint, pencil lead and tobacco leaf on a compelling nose. Smooth and elegant on entry, the tannins are fine and beautifully integrated, letting the dark fruit glide gracefully across the palate with a sense of refinement and pedigree rarely achieved in a Chilean wine. Compact but expressive, there is enough lift to keep the wine from feeling overweight while still letting the fruit linger through a long finish. Tasted blind, one would not guess South America- this is the kind of wine that can elevate an entire region.
