James Suckling: 98 Points

Such beautiful aromas of crushed berries currants walnuts allspice and nutmeg follow through to a full body with tight ultra fine tannins that provide length and intensity. A finish of slightly dried cherries with wet earth slate and stone. Chewy and fine-grained. A wine with soul and length. Give it time. Drink after 2025.


Wine Advocate: 98 Points

The 2019 Seña was produced with a Bordeaux blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 21% Malbec 15% Carmenere and 4% Petit Verdot with the Chilean character of the high percentage of Carmenere. Most of the volume fermented in stainless steel with some 10% in concrete vats and the final blend matured for 22 months in French oak barrels 80% of them new and 10% in Stockinger vats. It's 13.5% alcohol and has good acidity and freshness coming through as medium-bodied elegant and balanced. This is incredibly elegant subtle and harmonious even at this early stage. It has floral aromas notes of orange peel a touch of creamy sweet spices and great freshness. The palate is medium-bodied seamless and pure with pungent flavors and a soft texture. It's long clean defined and super tasty. I feel this wine is getting better and better by the vintage. The grapes were picked quite early and that helped to contain the ripeness and seems to have been a great decision. There was also an exception in the Panquehue zone where the Seña vines are where the summer was cooler than the average so quite different to many other regions in Chile. 100000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2021.

Vinous: 96 Points

The 2019 Seña 25 Años is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 21% Malbec 15% Carménère and 4% Petit Verdot from Aconcagua Costa. The wine was aged for 22 months 10% in foudres and the rest in French barrels. A vivid purple in hue the complex subtle nose opens up gradually delivering layer after layer of blackcurrants. Touches of sweet and sour cherry a twist of raspberry sweet spices and notes from the aging process such as nutmeg and cedar fill the palate. Relaxed in the mouth the 2019 Seña begins with a juicy well-integrated freshness that feels light as silk accompanied by extremely finely grained yet young tannins that sculpt the flow promising excellent aging potential. The finish lingers long repeating aromas of blackcurrant and sour cherry.
