"Light aromas of blueberries and flower petals. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh and fruity finish. A little subdued. 53% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 15% syrah, 7% petit verdot and 5% carmenere. Drink now." (91 pts.)

SP87 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"Redolent of dark plum and fig paste, this red offers fresh acidity and notes of white pepper. Milk chocolate on the ripe finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now. 50,000 cases made." (87 pts.)

RP85 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2015

"The new entry level 2014 Secret Reserve Red Blend is a multi-grape blend from Maipo with a majority of Cabernet and then Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Carménère. It’s fresh and grapey, with simple fruit aromas and hints of licorice. The palate is soft with unnoticeable tannins. 533,333 bottles produced." (85 pts.)

Chile

With its stunning, snowy mountains and beautiful beaches, Chile would be captivating even if it wasn’t turning out some of the most interesting and accessible wines in the world. But large producers like Concha y Toro and Casa LaPostolle have put Chile on the wine map with their complex yet value-driven Merlots and Cabernets, and lately smaller regions like Maipo, Casablanca, and the Bio Bio Valley have become more widely available.

Now, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and even that elusive beast of the wine world--affordable Pinot Noir—have joined the ranks of Chile’s most famous offerings. And don’t forget Chile’s signature grape, Carmenere--a peppery, purpley beast that goes wonderfully with grilled meat dishes. Best of all, Chile offers some of the best value in the world, with many outstanding wines selling for under $12.
