To make this wine, grapes are sourced from vineyards in Millahue, Cachapoal Valley. Aged in barrels for 24 months, this blend has a nose of cherry, raspberry and strawberry followed by cinnamon. Tannins have enough grip to hold fruit flavors accented by vanilla, light notes of black pepper and bell pepper.

The textbook 2019 Crianza was produced with Tempranillo from Rioja Alta, trying to showcase the freshness from their La Grajera vineyard with 13% alcohol and a pH of 3.66. It's medium-bodied, with fine, polished tannins and has a gentle mouthfeel with good balance and freshness. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in used oak barrels for one year.
