Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 94Closing in on ten years of age, this wine is beginning to show the complexity of classic cabernets grown in Macul, one of the highest districts in the Alto Maipo, close to Santiago. Age has amplified the herb scents, offering their fresh notes while the fruit flavors remain backstage, behind tannins that still feel youthful and energetic, giving the wine its profound depths. An elegant Alto Maipo cabernet.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92The 2006 Lazuli is a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the best plots with deep soils. It has a classic, developed bouquet of paprika, leather, smoked meat, cassis with certain brightness and sweet spices, with complexity and a polished palate with soft tannins and a silky texture, good acidity and a juicy, supple finish. The winery keeps the bottles and sells the wine when they consider the wine is ready for drinking. 6,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2016.Vinous Media ReviewRated 92Deep ruby. An expansive, complex bouquet evokes cassis, pipe tobacco, cedar and mocha, with a smoky nuance in the background. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense, surprisingly primary black and blue fruit flavors that are sharpened by juicy acidity. Puts on weight with air and finishes sweet and very long, with supple tannins coming in late. Note that this vintage is the current release for this wine. (Josh Reynolds)Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby red color. A very elegant nose of spices and ripe fruit combined with well-integrated French oak. Starts out soft, then the wine develops powerfully in the mouth. Elegant tannins with a long aftertaste emphasizes the smoothness of the wine. The structure of this wine allows for a long aging period.Alcohol 14.5%
