Sena was originally a joint project of Eduardo Chadwick, owner of Errazuriz, and the Robert Mondavi empire. Since the demise of Mondavi, Sena is entirely under the control of Chadwick. The fruit is sourced from Sena’s biodynamically farmed vineyard with the 2007 Sena made up of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carmenere, 12% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It puts forth an enthralling bouquet of sandalwood, underbrush, exotic spices, incense, floral notes, blueberry, and blackcurrant that borders on kinky. Already remarkably complex on the palate, with layered flavors, a plush palate feel, and precision balance, this beautifully rendered offering will evolve for another 6-8 years and provide a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2032.

A soft and silky wine now with fresh herb, black currants and stone aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Rich style. 65% cabernet, 26% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc, 3% syrah and 1% merlot. Showing some age now. Drink or hold.

The 2007 Sena has a lovely ripe bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and graphite that is well defined and still youthful. This shows far more purity than the older vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fine balance and more minerality towards the finish. This has the precision that I would seek in a top icon wine. Drink 2014-2025.

Winemakers Note

Seña, an iconic Chilean wine Seña was created in 1995 as a joint venture between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi, who shared a dream of making a wine that would show Chile’s full potential, a wine that would come to be welcomed, in time, among the world’s First Growths. Modelled on a Bordeaux style, it would have a Chilean soul given by its Carmenere variety, grown under biodynamic farming principles in the Aconcagua Valley.
