Flaherty Aconcagua 2015 — 90 points

The 2015 Aconcagua has the character of many of the valley’s reds—voluptuous flavors, ripeness, and the light menthol notes as well. The texture is smooth and ample, which brings thoughts of well-seasoned meats.

Flaherty Cauquenes 2015 — 92 points

Speaking of Maule wines in general, and Cauquenes wines in particular, this one has that wild side that you find in the zone, the piercing acidity and the flavors of herbs and earth fused with dazzlingly fresh red fruit. And that earthy finish—delicious.

Dussaillant-Lehmann Brut 2015 — 90 points

With 30 months of contact on its lees, this blend of chardonnay and pinot noir comes from the Longaví zone in the Andean foothills of the Maule Valley. Planted on very fertile volcanic soils, this is a delightful brut. Fresh and very lively, with just the right amount of sweetness to make it commercial, but not so much that it becomes tiresome after the first glass. A perfect wine for the aperitif.

Magnolia Extra Brut — 91 points
For this wine, winemaker Ed Flaherty follows an unusual path. First, the place. The Longaví zone in the Maule Valley’s Andean foothills is not exactly known for its sparkling wines, although cool enough to produce them. And second, the blend of grapes: 52% chardonnay, 7% pinot noir, and 41% país, from old vines in the zone. And, despite a certain bitterness, the blend works very well in this unique sparkling wine with earthy flavors, excellent acidity, and crunchy bubbles.
