Santiago, May 2009.- Viña San Pedro is pleased to announce outstanding scores –equal or above 90 points–, attained by three of our wines in the Chilean wines ranking just published at The Wine Advocate Magazine.
After tasting about 550 Chilean wines, last April 30th was released the ranking made by Mr. Jay Miller, the expert who rates the wines from Chile, Argentina, Australia, Spain, Oregon and Washington in the United States, for The Wine Advocate, the magazine owned by Mr. Robert Parker, one of the most influential wine-critics in the world.
Mr. Jay Miller highlighted our icon’s new vintage, Cabo de Hornos 2006, just launched in March, with 91+ points, then awarded 91 points to our new limited production wine 1865 Limited Edition 2006 and also, gave 90 points to 1865 Single Vineyard Syrah 2007, wine which was recently qualified with 88 points by Josh Raynolds, the American expert of the International Wine Cellar magazine.
Mr. Jay Miller’s tasting notes about our wines were:
- Cabo de Hornos 2006: “…exhibits notes of balsam wood, spice box, toast, blackcurrant and black cherry. Layered on the palate with an elegant personality, loads of spicy fruit are nicely balanced by soft tannins. Give it 3 – 4 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2012 to 2022”.
- 1865 Limited Edition 2006: “….is dominated Syrah and Carmenere aromas and flavors. Meat, game, and Asian spice notes lead to a rich, savory wine with several years of aging potential. This balanced effort will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021”.
- 1865 Single Vineyard Syrah 2007: “…has a superb bouquet of bacon, game, spice box, and blueberry. It has outstanding depth, grip, and savory fruit as well as a lengthy, pure finish. It is a great value”.
