TASTING NOTES

"The 2008 Quimera is a blend of 40% Malbec, 22% Merlot (from Tupungato), 14% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. It is closed on the nose compared to the 2006 and reluctantly gives up attractive aromas of blackberry, graphite and briary. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe, ripe tannins. There are notes of raspberry and cranberry with fine minerality towards the finish. Overall, this Quimera is fine and very elegant. Drink 2013-2018." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #203

"Dark and winey, delivering anise, plum sauce and mulled currant fruit carried by a dark graphite note. The long finish stretches out as this airs in the glass, with enough racy fruit to offset the slight raisined hint. Drink now. 3,073 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Scented, fragrant, vibrant fruit but quite austere and unyielding on the palate. Needs time - a sleeping giant." Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com
