From what was a warm year across Chile, Maipo Alto included, the 2009 Viñedo Chadwick is a pure, very ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. An intense nose of herbs and dried fig, blackberry jam and hints of licorice. On the palate, it has a warm richness with Puente Alto’s refined tannins, which deliver luxury and balance. It won’t develop much more in spite of the lively lick of flavor at the end.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030

The 2009 Vinedo Chadwick is aged for 22 months in French oak of which 93% is new. It has a lovely, Margaux inspired floral bouquet with superb delineation and vigor. The palate is rounded and generous with fine tannins and excellent delineation towards the finish. I actually think this is a better wine than the Sena 2009! Drink now-2025.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025
