Robert Parker: This is a very elegant vintage of Seña
The 2018 Seña shows the fresher side of the Ocoa zone of the Aconcagua Valley through a Bordeaux blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Malbec, 15% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot; there are small differences, but nothing substantial. As I've seen in other wines from the very complete 2018 vintage, the grapes ripened thoroughly and achieved more flavors and nuances, and the wines are slightly higher in alcohol (14% this year versus 13.3% in 2017, but in reality it's 13.8% ). But the wine seems to have more of everything. The grapes fermented in a combination of stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in new barriques and Stockinger foudres for 22 months, a similar formula as the one used for Viñedo Chadwick. This is a very elegant vintage of Seña, a year with a slow ripening so that the grapes achieved very good ripeness and full development of aromas and flavors, making the wine nuanced and complex, with depth but also freshness and finesse—floral and expressive. The tannins are very fine, polished and elegant, and the wine is long and complex, mixing the best f 2015 and 2016, coming through as a very complete year. It's still a little young and should develop nicely in bottle; it's approachable now, but if you can hold it a little bit more, it should be even better. This has to be the finest vintage of Seña to date. Comparing it with the Chadwick from the same year, there is more freshness and a little more complexity and clout coming form the cooler zone and the palette of varieties used that give more options to achieve more nuance. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February and March 2020.
James Suckling: The palate is more glamorous with ultra-fine tannins
This is a very thoughtful Seña that shows unique aromas of warm earth, mushrooms and conifer, turning to dark berries and black olives. The palate is more glamorous with ultra-fine tannins that envelop your palate. Shows power and vibrancy at the end. Toned muscles. It’s a very intellectual wine that harkens back to the 2015. Blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 18% malbec, 15% carmenere, 7% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Beautiful to try now, but better after 2023.

An inspiring Story

Guided by intuition and backed by family heritage, Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi handcrafted a wine of distinctive quality and character. Seña is the culmination of their wonderful parternship and a passionate journey.

An iconic decision is made from the heart. Following the sign of his intuition, in 1995 Eduardo Chadwick pioneered a joint venture with Robert Mondavi to handcraft a world-class Chilean wine. Chadwick searched alongside Mondavi for four long years before finding the ideal terroir in Chile’s Valle de Aconcagua that spoke to their instincts. Seña is the culmination of their vision – an expression of consummate quality and character.

Robert Mondavi

Among great New World wine pioneers, Robert Mondavi is an international icon. He believed that the path to a more gracious lifestyle leads through the appreciation of wine, food, and art. Also believing that Napa Valley could be the center for that lifestyle, Mondavi produced wines that belonged in the company of the great wines of the world, and wines that belonged at the family table.

In 1966, emboldened by boundless enthusiasm, he built the first major winery in the valley since prohibition: Robert Mondavi Winery. Since then the open arch of the Robert Mondavi Winery has welcomed thousands of guests to share in Robert’s love of wine, food, and art.

With the release of the Robert Mondavi Winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon in the late 60’s the world’s eyes were opened to the potential of the Napa Valley. The historic Paris tasting in 1976, where two former winemakers of the Robert Mondavi Winery won first prize, further supported this revelation.

Through tireless winemaking innovation, an uncompromising eye for quality and unshakable faith in California’s vineyards, Robert Mondavi realized his vision of creating a collection of the most recognized and best-loved wines in the world. More importantly, he realized his vision of Napa Valley as the center of the worldwide wine and food culture that has enriched the lives of millions

Robert Mondavi showed extraordinary vision as co-founder of Seña

Eduardo Chadwick

Eduardo Chadwick, Owner and President of Chile’s Viña Errázuriz, carries on his family’s legacy and passion for wine. Founded in 1870, Viña Errázuriz is described as the “quality benchmark from Chile” and as among the world’s best by the fine wine critics.
Eduardo has been director of, Wines of Chile, the Chilean Wine Export Association based in Santiago, and is a Mayor Supporter of the Institute of Masters of Wine. Decanter recognized him as one of the fifty most influential personalities of the wine industry. He is also a member of the “Confrérie of the Wine Industry Merit,” which oversees the authenticity, quality and image of Chilean wine.
Eduardo has been an active ambassador of Chilean wines around the world. In 2004, he came up with the idea of doing a technical seminar to educate top European critics on Chile’s unique terroirs and compare them vis-à-vis to the most traditional regions of the world: Bordeaux and Tuscany. Guided by his faith in Erráruriz and Seña wines, Chadwick arranged a blind tasting in Berlin, pitching his wines against the best of these regions in blind equal conditions. The big surprise for everyone was that Eduardo’s wines, Viñedo Chadwick 2000 and Seña 2001, came in first and second places in front of all the revered First Growths and Super Tuscan wines.  Now widely known simply as The Berlín Tasting, this event has been recreated in the main capitals around the world, showcasing Chilean wine’s world-class status.
