The 2009 Protegido is a pure Cabernet Sauvignon from the Quinta de Maipo (which lies close to the river). Handpicked and aged for 18 months in French oak, it has a complex nose of blackberry, smoked meats, hoisin sauce and dried herbs that is well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with an oaky entry that distracts from some lovely ripe Cabernet trying to surface. It is a little disjointed at the moment, although there is fine tension towards the fresh, white pepper-tinged finish.

Protegido ("Protected") comes from Quinta de Maipo, a place where Vina Maipo's first and precious wines are grown. The influence of the Maipo River allows this Cabernet Sauvignon to achieve its best expression. The wine is an intense ruby color with attractive red fruit and cassis aromas, plus delicate vanilla and sweet spice notes. The palate is captivated by the tannins' perfectly balaced power and elegance, while pleasing acidity delivers a persistent finish.
