Dark ruby red colour tinged with decisive violet tones, expresses on the nose incredible sensations of fullness and complexity with a note of ripe berries that give sensations of chocolate and nuances of balsam. Oreno is a captivating wine, rich in structure but decisively dynamic, enhanced by the nuances of new oak and an interminable finish. Vegan.
James Suckling Tasting Note
Love the aromas to this red with currants, blackberries and hints of dark truffles. Full-bodied, with beautifully crafted tannins that are creamy and seamless. Fabulous refinement and length. Leave it in your cellar for at least four or five years. But impressive to taste or drink now. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. One of best Orenos ever made since its inception in 1999. 96 Points – November 2012
Wine Spectator Tasting Note
A full, rich red, with pure cherry, floral, liquorice and spice aromas and flavours. Balanced and graceful, with a lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit and spice. Should get even better with a few years of ageing. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2025 94 points – Bruce Sanderson – April 2013
