Review:

- Descorchados (November 2017, 93 pts

"The blend of the 2014 Memorias was simplified to 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Syrah and 15% Petit Verdot. The percentage of new barrels was lowered to 50% and the élevage shortened to 17 months, in search of fresher and more vertical wines, the aim since 2011 or so. There is a little more volume here compared with the 2013. In the slightly riper vintages, winemaker Gonzalo Guzmán tries to use less new oak. But the profile is quite similar and coherent with the house style; it's also what you get from a warm and dry place where they are. This should be released around June 2017. 60,450 bottles were filled in January 2016."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #230, April 2017), 90 pts

"Sourced from slopes in the foothills of the Andes, this is an ambitiously oaked blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 22% Syrah and 15% Petit Verdot. Ripe yet firm, with some minty reduction, plenty of grip and layers of savoury cassis and blueberry fruit. 2020-26"
- Tim Atkin (Chile 2018 Special Report), 90 pts

"Aromas of currant, blackberry and chocolate follow through a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot and syrah. Drink now."
- James Suckling (May 2017), 90 pts
