Why We're Buying
Errazuriz Viñedo Chadwick is a groundbreaking wine. The 2014 vintage became the first Chilean wine to earn a perfect score, helping put the estate on the map. Wine James Suckling wrote, "Perhaps a sign of Chile truly coming of age is the 100-point rating in this report of the pure Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Viñedo Chadwick. This is a wine that defines the greatness of Chile with a purity, structure and finesse that competes with the best reds of the world."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The flagship is the 2007 Vinedo Chadwick, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of sandalwood, pencil lead, scorched earth, violets, exotic spices, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Full-bodied and dense on the palate, this is an opulent effort with layers of multi-dimensional flavors, plenty of ripe tannin, with all components in harmony. This lengthy effort will see its 30th birthday in fine form. Eduardo Chadwick has taken this wine on a world tour to blind taste it against the great wines of Bordeaux. His confidence is well placed.
Inky ruby. A deeply scented bouquet offers black cherry, black raspberry, smoky minerals, mocha, licorice and spicecake. Dense but juicy and sappy, with intense sweetness to the dark berry and mineral flavors and a strong mineral spine. Impressively pure and graceful cabernet, finishing very long, vibrant and precise, with complex mineral, licorice and spice nuances. This seamless wine is balanced to repay patience.
