Critic Reviews

“So many of the best Carmen res come from Peumo that the price of grapes must be increasing by the vintage. Sourced from the clay and granite soils of the La Ladera block, this is scented, smooth, and finely balanced, all graphite, red berries, and fresh herbs framed by subtle oak. 2023-28”

“ Herbal nose and more soft herbs on the palate; spicy and juicy, with tangy fruit and a lasting finish.”

“The 2019 Carménère Reserva Especial Cordillera de Los Andes is purple in color with a well-organized, nuanced nose of roasted red pepper, jalapeño, ash, and ripe plum. Juicy and light on its feet, with flow defined by a slightly tartaric freshness that underlines the bold finish. ”

“Blends the aromas and tastes of chrysanthemum and ripe plum against a peppery core, with chalky tannins and a firm finish. Drink now through 2026.”

About The Winery
Familia Torres, a renowned winemaking family with roots in Spain, has been producing wines for 151 years over 5 generations. Admired and inspiring, Familia Torres seamlessly unites tradition with innovation and follows a sustainable and innovative business model. As founding members of Primum Familiae Vini, a prestigious international association of world-class family-owned wineries, the family is closely connected to people and the land, and leads with energy, passion, and purpose. In 1979, Familia Torres arrived in Chile, marking an incontrovertible turning point in Chilean winemaking. Pioneers in the region, they were the first foreign winery to arrive in the country, kickstarting a new era in the quality of Chilean wines. Embracing the continued pursuit for unique and distinctive wines, Miguel Torres Chile has worked diligently to revive ancestral varieties like the País grape in order to craft identity-driven wines with a sense of history. Over the years, this quest has led to unprecedented wines such as Escaleras de Empedrado, the first Pinot Noir grown on slate soils in Chile, and Manso de Velasco, produced from vines more than 150 years old. An exemplary winery and leader in high-end Chilean wines, Miguel Torres Chile today is under the direction of owner Miguel Torres Maczassek and is built upon by three pillars: organic farming and sustainability, fair trade practices, and innovation.
