Af Neal Martin
"The 2007 Sena has a lovely ripe bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and graphite that is well defined and still youthful. This shows far more purity than the older vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fine balance and more minerality towards the finish. This has the precision that I would seek in a top icon wine. Drink 2014-2025.

Sena is the peripatetic wine that goes around the world challenging and, let it be said, often defeating First Growths in blind tastings. I will not enter into a discussion about that here, although it must be said that Sena is an impressive wine. Tasting through this mini-vertical from almost the first vintage, I did find a distinct improvement from 2007 onwards. While I understand that older vintages have their share of plaudits, I discerned more complexity and vitality as well as finer integration of oak on newer vintages, as if more thought had gone into the wines. The result can be seen in the wines themselves, in particular the outstanding 2010."

BLIND TASTINGS: SEÑA AT THE TOP!
In 2004, Eduardo Chadwick, proud of his wine, wanted to evaluate how well it could be appreciated in comparison with very high level wines. He organised a blind Tasting in Berlin with Seña, Lafite, Margaux, Latour and Solaia, cult wine from Italy… Thirtysix of Europe’s most highly regarded wine journalists, writers and merchants ranked Seña 2001 in 2nd position (before Lafite2000 and Margaux 2001) and Seña 2000 in 5th position (before Margaux 2000, Latour 2000 and 2001)…Since that day, many similar blind tastings have been organised all around the world with positive results for Seña. In Hong Kong in 2010, Seña 2007 was ranked number 2 just after Margaux but before Lafite, Haut Brion, Sassicaia and Tignanello 2007. By the end of 2011, a Seña Vertical Tour had been organised in Asia in order to evaluate the ageing potential of Seña in a blind tasting against some Bordeaux flagship wines. The results were impressive: Eduardo Chadwick’s vision (sole owner since 2004): to become one of the best wines in the world.

Om Sena
I 1995 indgik Eduardo Chadwick en joint venture med Robert Mondavi om at lave chilensk vin i verdensklasse. Chadwick søgte sammen med Mondavi i fire lange år, før de fandt den ideelle terroir i Chiles Valle de Aconcagua. Der købte de 350 hektar uberørt jord, hvor på vingårdens opdyrkede areal strækker sig over 42 hektar Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec og Syrah. Seña er kulminationen på deres vision - et udtryk for topkvalitet og karakter.

Jorden på dalens skrænter indeholder en række forskellige teksturer af både løsere og fastere karakter, hvilket resulterer i en stor mangfoldighed af veldrænet grus, sten og ler.
Señas beliggenhed er i et lidt køligere område, end det der traditionelt præger rødvinsproduktion i Chile, men det er stadig varmt nok til at druerne kan blive fuldmodne. Vinbruget er biodynamisk, og man ønsker, at områdets terroir og karakter afspejles så dybt og autentisk som muligt i vinen.

Seña har modtaget et utal af præmieringer og rosende anmeldelser i alle betydende vinmedier, ja faktisk er vinen den højest ratede chilenske vin, hvor de klassiske Bordeauxdruer indgår.
