Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Lien contains 50% Carménère, 35% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot; it shows a very savory nose, feels almost salty and should do very well with food. 2010 had good ripeness and they had a lot of good Carménère, so it is quite dominant in the blend. It's quite complex with plenty of smoky notes from the Syrah. The palate has an abundance of fine-grained tannins, a bit powdery, ending dry. Ready to be enjoyed with food. Some 50,000 bottles were produced.

Wine EnthusiastThis racy, fresh, cool-vintage blend is a touch rubbery on the nose, with berry and cassis undertones. A tight palate delivers a mix of dark plum, blackberry, baking spice and chocolate flavors in front of a peppery, dry, crisp finish. Drink through 2019.
