Complex, with savory, spicy character, showing tobacco, salted plums, olives, black cherries, cassis and a hint of white pepper on the nose, followed by a refined, savory, balsamic accent. A full-bodied Seña with juicy fruit chiseling into the tight, extremely fine-grained tannins. Long, bright and still elegant from this warm vintage. 53% cabernet sauvignon, 25% malbec, 15% carmenere and 7% petit verdot. A wine with lots of harmony now, but better to drink from 2025. Read more

Peter Moser - Falstaff Magazine

Brilliant dark ruby with purple reflections, subtly lighter at the rim. Fine noble oak notes, black fruits of the forest, subtle cassis, delicate savoury aromas, some nougat and tobacco. The wine is inviting, with a multi-faceted young bouquet and ripe plum in the background. Juicy and elegant, ripe sweet cherry, round, supporting tannins, good freshness, mineral and lively with nuances of red fruits on the finish. The wine has a very good length, is already harmonious, and has good ageing potential.

Anne Krebiehl - Falstaff

A lovely, juicy nose blends crushed blackberry and blueberry. Overtones of tar, cocoa and iris lend a seductive edge. The palate, upon release now, is brimming with dark and youthful fruit, dense with young, bold, ripe tannins. Lovely, bright freshness peeps through, brightens the fruit and absolutely defines the finish.

Joaquin Hidalgo - Vinous

The 2020 Seña was made in another warm, early-ripening year further complicated by the restrictions that came with the COVID pandemic, which hindered decision-making in the vineyard. A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec, 15% Carménère and 7% Petit Verdot, it was aged for 22 months, 90% in French barrels and the rest in foudres . A purplish garnet red, the intense, ripe nose presents notes of herb, blackcurrant and plum while in the mouth the rich balance gives a gentle boost channeled by firm but restrained tannins. Juicy and relaxed with nuanced flavor, it will improve in the bottle.

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. The 2020 vintage Warm, early season. Dense, powerful and rich wine with rounded tannins. 2020 was a warm vintage that produced very concentrated, powerful and exuberant wines according to the weather and terroir conditions. Our experienced team successfully produced a magnificent balanced and complex wine with uncommon layers of depth and structure as well as fine-grained, rounded tannins, displaying its elegance with fresh aromas, good acidity, and rich colour. Tasting Note “A deep and beautiful garnet-red colour with violet hues, the 2020 Seña presents complexity on the nose with multiple layers of fresh red-fruit aromas such as cherries and raspberries accompanied by violets and pleasing touches of dill and rosemary, all framed by light notes of sweet spices. The palate shows young fruits, more sweet spices, and smooth balsamic tones. It is fresh and juicy with elegant fine-grained tannins that create to a silky and pleasing sensation. The 2020 vintage of Seña shows elegance and balance with an ample and profound finish." Francisco Baettig, Winemaker 2020 vintage in video: https://bit.ly/2020Seña
