Some gunpowder and slate undertones. Full-bodied, yet formed and tight with minerality and brightness. Vivid acidity gives this energy and depth. Drinkable, but will age beautifully.”     Las Pizarras Pinot Noir, the Best Pinot Noir in Chile LAS PIZARRAS 99 POINTS VINTAGE 2018 “Great aromas of dried strawberries and fresh flowers, such as lavender. Full-bodied yet very tight and focused. Impressive tannic structure, but refined and polished. Lightly chewy. Finishes tight and refined. Best pinot of Chile. Drink after 2022, but hard to hold back.     Las Pizarras Syrah LAS PIZARRAS 94 POINTS VINTAGE 2017 “This is a new syrah and delivers extreme perfumes of flowers and sliced meat with dried strawberries. Full to medium body. Very soft and silky tannins. Savory. Polished and caressing. Delicious, savory finish.”   DON MAXIMIANO, AMONG THE BEST CHILEAN BLENDS 96 POINTS VINTAGE 2017 “Currants, flowers, sandalwood and crushed stone. Some cocoa. Medium to full body and linear, tight tannins. Bright and fresh. Energetic. Shows serious tension and focus. Excellent finish.”   KAI, EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY OF CHILEAN CARMENERE 95 POINTS VINTAGE 2017 “This a small-production wine and the best selection of carmenere from the vineyard. It delivers depth and length and energy and focus for the grape. Medium-to full-bodied, solid and firm with pretty dark-berry, walnut and dried-herb undertones. Succulent. Exceptional bottling from a top year for carmenere.”   VILLA DON MAXIMIANO 94 POINTS VINTAGE 2017 “Beautiful aromas of currants, coffee and dried flowers. Full body, round and juicy tannins with berry, chocolate and light vanilla undertones. Delicious finish. Better after 2022, but already delicious.”   LA CUMBRE, A SOLID SYRAH 93 POINTS VINTAGE 2017 “Intense and rich with a black-pepper undertone to the ripe blue fruit. Full-bodied, round and juicy with beautiful fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Syrah and a touch of petit sirah. Solid Syrah.”   The Aconcagua Costa range, sourced from the Aconcagua Costa appellation, shines for its quality Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir 2018 94 points   Aconcagua Costa Chardonnay 2018 93 points   Aconcagua Costa Syrah 2017 93 points   Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2018 92 points   MAX RENEWS ITS CONSISTENCY   MAX Carmenere 2017 93 points   MAX Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 92 points   MAX Syrah 2016 92 points   MAX Chardonnay 2018 91 points   MAX Pinot Noir 2018 91 points   MAX Sauvignon Blanc 2017 91 points
