Seña is the result of collaboration between the late Robert Mondavi and Chile’s Eduardo Chadwick, and is seen as THE icon wine of Chile for many. Part of this success and global recognition is due to the flamboyant promotional efforts of its creator, Eduardo Chadwick, a fifth generation family member of Vina Errazuriz. In particular, it was Chadwick's organising of international tastings and seminars that put Seña in the limelight, pitching his wine against the greatest First Growth and Super Tuscan properties and coming out on top.
Midnight black heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Wonderful nose with entrancing scents of red to blackcurrant, blackberry, red liquorice, tobacco leaf, dusty earth, vanillin cedar, black olive and spicy dried herbs. Rich, refined and possessing an aristocratic Bordeaux like sophistication the palate is decorated with blackcurrant, blackberry and liquorice fruits which are complimented by vanillin cedar, dusty earth, tobacco, dried herb and spice characters. Shows ample freshness and a tightly grained, sturdily built tannin structure that is seamlessly integrated. Concludes long with great finesse.
Cellar 10-15 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews....
The 2020 Seña is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec, 15% Carmenere and 7% Petit Verdot (a little higher in search of acidity) from grapes harvested early, the second week of March, and fermented mostly in stainless steel and 10% in concrete eggs. It has a moderate 13.5% alcohol and good freshness. It's subtle and layered, not only fruit but with more spice; it has polished tannins and very integrated oak after 22 months in barrique, 78% new, and with 10% of the volume in large Stockinger barrels. The warmer years seem to be nicely managed, so that it's not reflected in the ripeness but is more a matter of texture and quality of the tannins; in the warmer years, like 2017 or this 2019, the wines have a little more grip, but these are definitely finer than those from the 2017 vintage. This wine has intensity and complexity, with no mintiness or herbal notes; it's spicy and juicy, with energy and depth. It has structure, color, stuffing and acidity to develop nicely in bottle. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2022. Drink: 2023 - 2035.

Luis Gutiérrez - Wine Advocate

Complex, with savory, spicy character, showing tobacco, salted plums, olives, black cherries, cassis and a hint of white pepper on the nose, followed by a refined, savory, balsamic accent. A full-bodied Seña with juicy fruit chiseling into the tight, extremely fine-grained tannins. Long, bright and still elegant from this warm vintage. 53% cabernet sauvignon, 25% malbec, 15% carmenere and 7% petit verdot. A wine with lots of harmony now, but better to drink from 2025.
