    Great job
    Your wine was the most serious and elegant and powerful wine at the CIA Somm Event in Napa by far!
    It was introduced as the future face of Chile and a project unique in its vision and attention to detail and research and precision.

    The 2011 VIK is an extraordinary wine.The suave oak - this wine has spent nearly two years in new French barrels - is beautifully integrated. Supple, fine tannins allow immediate enjoyment, but a decade of cellaring will reap rewards. Powerful yet elegant.

    A powerful, plush and juicy red, with plenty of upfront, concentrated flavors of dark plum, dried blackberry and cherry tart that are accented by cream notes. A modern style, with a suave finish that offers cocoa powder and forest floor accents.
    VIK 2011 Score: 92

    Fresh yet oaky on the nose, with aromas of herbs and char, this is layered, pure and smooth on the palate. Spice, oak and chocolate mix with berry and plum flavors, while the dry, long, oaky finish is on the money. Drink this well-crafted Cabernet blend through 2022.

    Under the holistic concept that "the whole is more important than the sum of its parts", this blend shows the strength of an unexplored area with great personality.

  • Sábado 14 de noviembre de 2015

    No expense has been spared here, in the vineyard, the winery, in personnel, and the commitment shows in the wine. Simply put, Vik and his team have proven that Chile can make stunning, world class wine. The 2011, with its deep, Cabernet fruit and tobacco nuances could be from Bordeaux or Napa Valley, and is easily on a par with the best of either.

    It is a big wine but not high in alcohol, proving that you can achieve richness along with elegance, so that the wine is a pleasure when sipped, from the tip of the palate to the back of the throat. Its components of 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 29 percent Carménère, 4 percent Syrah, 7 percent Cabernet Franc and 5 percent Merlot give it both breadth and depth, and the unusual addition of Syrah brings out a higher fruit component, while the Merlot softens the wine, whose tannins are already loosening.

    Il colore è rosso scuro impenetrabile, concentrato, luminoso; ;
    ciò che mi ha lasciato “ senza fiato “ è stato il naso “ ammaliante “ di questo capolavoro,
    un grande impatto olfattivo : intenso, perfetto, senza una sbavatura, complesso ma connotato da una grande finezza ed eleganza come mai mi era capitato di incontrare :
    fruttato ma mai troppo , speziato ma mai troppo, minerale ma mai troppo, etereo ma mai troppo, tutto in un perfetto equilibrio ed una qualità di profumi al di fuori della norma ;
    in bocca è armonico, i tannini sono di grana nobile , fini ed eleganti, un capolavoro enologico, strepitoso, una “ GRANDE SOUPLESSE “, UN VELLUTO ma connotato da un bel corpo ed una bella struttura glicerica, il tutto perfettamente armonioso ed in equilibrio. Interminabile il finale. Come posso assegnare un punteggio a questo vino, quando sono certo che questo vino dovrebbe involarsi oltre i 100/100 , consapevole che ciò non è possibile ?
    Personalmente mi attesto sui 98/99 centesimi, ma a questo punto diventa irrilevante il punteggio, ciò che conta è che questo vino è un vero CAPOLAVORO DELLA NATURA, UNITAMENTE ALL’ESPERIENZA DI UN GRANDE ENOLOGO, DEL TEAM AZIENDALE E DELLA PROPRIETA’ : CHAPEAU !
    ( Teniamo conto anche della giovanissima età delle viti….!! Che cosa sarà nei prossimi anni ?? )

    “ What a throughly unexpected and beautiful experience it was to spend a night here at the lodge. From the insightful tour of the vineyards with Sabrina, the tasting of the ‘09 and ‘10 blends with Cristián to dinner prepared by Loreto. This is one very special place, thank you for sharing it will us. I look forward to hearing more great stories of this special place.
