"Dry-farmed vines over 120 years' old supply the raw material for this fresh, spicy, engagingly complex blend of País and 20% San Francisco. Herbal, stony and very floral, with a pale colour that belies its intensity and concentration, this has notes of pepper spice, rose petal and red berries and classic stony minerality. Itata at its best. 2022-2027" Tim Atkin MW, 95 Points

"There is a wild and rustic side to the 2019 Las Olvidadas Mezcla Tinta, even more noticeable in the 2020 I also tasted. It comes from their vineyard in Santa Cruz de Guarilihue where the ancient vines of País and San Francisco vines are intermixed in the field. 2019 was a dry vintage in Itata, but they managed to keep the wine at 13% alcohol and with mellow acidity. The grapes fermented together after being hand destemmed with a zaranda destemmer like the traditional Pipeño wines, without any additions. The wine was put in barrel for malolactic and 18 months of aging. It's perfumed and intriguing, light to medium-bodied and with a strong personality." The Wine Advocate, 93+ Points

"The 2019 Field Blend Old Vine Series Las Olvidadas is a field blend of 80% País and 20% San Francisco from Huarilihue, Itata. Made with no added sulfites from grapes that were hand-pressed and 20% macerated in whole bunches. Maroon in the glass. The aromas include strawberry, kirsch, earth and cherry alongside a little stem. This has the slightly rough tannins one expects from País but delivers a flavorful aftertaste founded in sour cherry aromas. Drink: 2021-2027." Vinous Media, 93 Points
