A sizable but controlled bouquet shows minerally and stone on top and fruity like cassis and berries below. A saturated, flush palate has depth and is generous, with notes of blackberry, fig and chocolate. A smooth and oaky finish.

Oriented to produce high quality wines. Located in the beginning of the Andes mountains. The vineyard is planted at 600m (1900 ft) of altitude. Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun, by a lake, in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totalling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (Laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. The winery produces stunning expressions.
