93+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "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. 4,371 bottles and 50 magnums were filled in October 2020. Drink: 2021-2025. (Aug 2021)"
93 points Joaquín Gidalgo (Vinous): "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. (May 2021)"
