Errazuriz Don Maximiano 2016
Fjord black fruits on the nose. This wine also has the signature freshness of modern Chilean reds. I love the crispness at the very long finish. There's plenty of tannic power, too, but the wine remains delicate. Silky texture. Drink or hold.
Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870. With his vision for the future and his innovative, pioneering spirit, he planted the first French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley. His initiative and creativity were carried onto his descendants. In just over a century, his descendants consolidated the winery and positioned their wines among the world’s most noteworthy.
