The 2012 Seña is the product of a warm year combined with the peak of the overripe, oaky approach in style. A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carménère, 12% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot aged for 22 months in two thirds new French barrels. Garnet red in hue. The sun and heat made their mark on the nose, which is jammy with soy sauce aromas. It’s potent in the mouth with somewhat dry tannins. It has evolved more rapidly than other vintages.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030
