98 Pointz James Suckling


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.


98 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


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,T 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.


96 Pointz Vinous

The 2019 Seña was made in a year in which the average temperatures were similar to 2018 but organized differently: the spring was warm and the summer cool. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Malbec, 15% Carménère and 4% Petit Verdot, it was aged for 22 months, 90% in mostly new French barrels and 10% in foudres. Purple in the glass. The nose presents notes of plum with hints of blackberry and expressive layers of mint and herb. In the mouth the firm tannins are refined and a little compact. A delicate wine that will improve in the bottle.

Bonus Reviews

97 Pointz Decanter


The twenty-fifth vintage of a wine first made in 1995 by the Mondavi and Chadwick families is one of Francisco Baettig’s best editions yet: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Malbec, 15% Carmenere and Petit Verdot aged for 22 months in French oak (10% in foudres). The nose offers redcurrant, blackberry, and cherry over a bed of sweet spices, cedar and peppers. Dense core and firm grip, it needs to be decanted or left in the bottle for a while longer.
