Wine Advocate # 213. June 2014. Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - The 2012 Outer Limits GCM is a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Monastrell, three Mediterranean grapes that make complete sense in the Colchagua zone. The Carinena was regrafted on some Cabernet Sauvignon with material from Cauquenes, the Garnacha is high up in terraces and slopes up to 55-degree gradient and planted at very high density, 16,600 plants per hectare, each vine with a post in a Northern Rhone style. Contrary to common belief, I find the Garnacha from barrels a little reductive (tasted separately). Finally, the Monastrell was planted on the slopes. The blend is 50/30/20, and it has a blue and red fruit nose with notes of cherries and blueberries, very Mediterranean, with intense aromas of dry herbs, thyme, lavender, pollen, beeswax and well-integrated wood, (it aged for 12 months in used barrels). The palate is medium-bodied, silky, with very fine tannins and good freshness. They have been fine-tuning this wine since the initial 2010 vintage, where the oak was more evident than in the 2013. which is fresher and vibrant, and was about to be bottled when I visited them. I also tasted the separate components, which was a great experience. 12,000 bottles were produced, the limit set by their vineyards. Drink now-2017.
