Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 93 pts

Dec 2015 - Luis Gutierrez - The 2013 Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve, sourced from a cool vintage, is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 6% Carménère and 5% Petit Verdot; it fermented in small stainless steel vats and matured in French oak barrels (65% new) for 22 moths. It has a very classical nose, a Bordeaux blend with aromas of blackberries, faint balsamic notes, cedar wood, graphite, cigar box, cracked peppercorns and tobacco leaves. It has a lot less new oak than the vintages of yesteryear. The palate is medium to full-bodied with the telltale Cabernet tannins, juicy fruit, and tension keeping the freshness balancing the sweet fruit. One of the finest versions of Don Maximiano

Feb 2015 - Dark luscious purplish crimson colour. Freshness is the watchword on the nose, as opposed to the rich ripeness of the Maipo Cabs. Quite subtle and a bit minty. Tannins very well managed. Well put together. But it’s pretty muscular as opposed to fleshy. Dry tea-leaf flavours on the finish. Should make old bones.


Wine Spectator (2013) - 90 pts

Rich and fruity, with a firm backbone of acidity, this offers flavors of dark currant, dried blueberry and molten chocolate that are accented by orange pekoe tea notes. The lively finish has licorice accents. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmen?re and Petit Verdot.


James Suckling (2013) - 94 pts

Intense aromas of flowers, black currants and orange peel. Full-bodied, dense and tight. Yet there's a brooding seriousness to this red. Leave for at least three or four year in bottle. 79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% malbec, 6% carmenere and 5% petit verdot.


Wine Enthusiast (2013) - 92 pts

Earthy black-olive and foresty herbal scents accent core blackberry and moss aromas. Intense, juicy acidity gives this Cabernet blend vitality across the palate. Herbal berry, olive, pepper and tobacco flavors are spicy on a finish bolstered by brisk, powerful acidity. Drink through 2025.
