Wine Advocate : “This has to be the finest vintage of Seña to date”.

Seña was originally a joint venture between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi with the aim to produce Chile’s ultimate premium red wine. Sharing their dreams, efforts, and dedication, in 1997 they released the first vintage of Seña (1995), Chile’s first Icon wine, which marked a milestone and initiated the path for making Ultra-Premium wines in Chile. It’s a biodynamic certified wine for 15 years.

James Suckling score 100/100

“This is a very thoughtful Seña that shows unique aromas of warm earth, mushrooms, and conifer, turning to dark berries, and black olives. The palate is more glamorous with ultra-fine tannins that envelop your palate. Shows power and vibrancy at the end. Toned muscles. It’s a very intellectual wine that harkens back to the 2015. Blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 18% malbec, 15% carmenere, 7% cabernet franc and 5% merlot”.

Wine advocate score 98/100
This is a very elegant vintage of Seña, a year with a slow ripening so that the grapes achieved very good ripeness and full development of aromas and flavors, making the wine nuanced and complex, with depth but also freshness and finesse – floral and expressive. The tannins are very fine, polished and elegant, and the wine is long and complex, mixing the best of 2015 and 2016, coming through as a very complete year. It’s still a little young and should develop nicely in bottle; it’s approachable now, but if you can hold it a little bit more, it should be even better. This has to be the finest vintage of Seña to date. Comparing it with the clout coming form the cooler zone and the palette of varieties used that give more options to achieve more nuance.
