The 2011 Quimera is a blend of all five varietals from Bordeaux aged for 12 months in barrel (1/3 new barrel, the rest second-year barrels) and 2-3 months in tank to settle the lees. In 2011 everything was fermented separately. When they have simultaneous ripeness they co-ferment, but it was not the case here. It feels very Bordeaux, quite ripe, juicy with a mixture of blackberries, red berries and a little smoke. They look for barrels that respect the wine. It still feels a little tannic. We tasted some older vintages and the 2006 still has fruit and freshness. Drink 2015-2019.

The review is for the regulasr Quimera, this is the "Edicion Limitada" This dark, compact red leads with a floral note to the racy cassis and cherry puree fruit, well-integrated with fine tannins and bright acidity. Offers a long finish of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2018. 8,583 cases made.
