Aresti 2007 Family Collection Red (Curicó Valley)
This wine has traveled miles in the right direction compared to its early incarnations. It’s piercing and potent up front, with cigar box, mocha, toast and coffee aromas in addition to fine flavors of tobacco, cassis, vanilla and lightly baked berry and cassis. Finishes wavy and long; 50% Syrah along with Merlot…
Aresti 1999 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (Rio Claro)
This handsomely built Cabernet from a subappellation of Curicó has a winning nose of black currants, spices and chocolate. The mouthfeel is rich, almost lush, with cassis, licorice and dark-chocolate flavors. Finishes long and smooth, and offers very good balance along with a lot of flavor and texture. Best Buy.
Aresti 2008 Equilibrio Made With Organically Grown Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon (Maipo Valley)
There’s plenty of black fruit and power on the nose. The palate matches that aromatic intensity by showing tannic grab and body along with deep cherry, cassis and tobacco flavors. Finishes earthy and leathery, but with enough berry fruit and richness.

Aresti 2008 Trisquel Syrah (Maipo Valley)
Black cherry and cassis aromas are sweet and ripe. The palate is lively and shows zippy acids along with roasted berry flavors that are juicy due to the fresh acidity. Darkens up on the finish, showing coffee, chocolate and good length. Uncomplicated, fruity Syrah.
Aresti 2009 Estate Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (Curicó Valley)
A nice, simple everyday Cabernet is what this is. The nose is sweet and smooth, with slightly candied red fruit aromas. There’s some snap and good vibrations on the palate along with flavors of raspberry and red currant. Simple, clean and balanced.
Aresti 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (Central Valley)
As Aresti’s vines get older its wines appear to be getting better. A case in point is this Cab, which shows nice plum and berry aromas followed by forward red plum and raspberry flavors. It’s medium bodied and solid, with a touch of woodiness expressed through lingering vanilla and chocolate flavors.
Aresti 2010 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (Curicó Valley)
Cherry, cassis and rose petal aromas are clean and approachable. The palate is tight and fresh but limited in scope. There’s a quick rush of red berry and plum flavors that drift toward oaky vanilla on the finish.
Aresti 2007 Reserva Carmenère (Curicó Valley)
Rich, with thick but appealing tar, chocolate and blackberry aromas. The acidity, tannins and structure all seem right. Flavors of bright berry and plum are youthful and friendly, and there’s a hint of vanilla to the finish. Decidedly not herbal or forced.
