Located in the Aconcagua Valley, 40 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean, Seña's 42-hectare hillside vineyard was planted in 1999 to key red Bordeaux varieties. The colluvial soils on the valley's slopes present a variety of textures and proportions of stone content, resulting in a great diversity of well-drained gravel and rocky soils with loam to clay-loam texture. The climate is Mediterranean, with a long dry season and rainfall concentrated in winter. Due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the median temperatures are low, however, the vineyard's position on the eastern side of the Coastal Mountains, facing away from the sea, protects the vines from the direct effect of the ocean's strong, cold winds and creates cool-climate conditions, perfect for producing red grapes that reach an excellent level of maturity with balanced acidity that provide great elegance and finesse.
The 2009 Sena has an exuberant bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry, menthol, crushed stone and graphite that is extremely well defined and more feminine than the 2008. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, taut tannins and superb focus. It has a focused, leafy, tobacco infused finish and great length. Excellent. Drink 2014-2020.
