Overview of the Wine
Daniel Lonnberg, a Chilean national, studied Oenology at the University of Chile. His passion for wine arises very early as a result of the habit and conscience of his parents, to always have a good wine on the table at each of the meetings at home, something everyday in Chile.
His first works were in Viña Concha y Toro, in charge of making fine white and red wines. Later he worked at Viña Altair (Joint Venture of Viña San Pedro-Chateau Dassault), in charge of wines for export. Towards the year 2003 – 2004 he had a job offer in Mexico for the company Domecq, having the responsibility of helping in the winemaking process of the different lines of the company. Arriving in Ensenada and seeing the riches of this place, its people, its local products and especially the great potential of the Valle de Guadalupe, in 2005 he made the decision to settle permanently in that city.
In Ensenada he meets Hugo D’Acosta who invites him to participate first in the Casa de Piedra projects and then take over the Parallel Project, where he spent 7 years. However, two years before, he had started working with Adobe Guadalupe in the elaboration of his wine lines, and by the beginning of 2010 he made the decision to become independent and enter the Adobe Guadalupe team as Winemaker in charge of the Project where He is in charge of the elaboration of the lines of the Gardens and the Archangels.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Intense and radiant red dark color. Floral notes with a hint of spice. Also present are aromas of rich red & dark fruits with a touch of warm oak vanilla. Smooth tannins and a mouth watering acidity contributes to the wines’s balance as well as to its long and persistent finish. Pairs excellently with pastas, heavily condimented meals or desserts with dark berries. It also goes very well with mole (chocolate base).
93 Points - Ian Blackburn
Claret styled with finesse and exotic hendonistic traits; Petitie verdot lines up nicely with the bosenberry preserves acthieved by the old vine zinfandel. The varietals support each other in a unique and volumputous way that makes thiis Zinfandel fan impressed. Color 13.5 (deep and dark), Aroma (bold and yet appealing) 23/25, Body (a tender piece of pie with nice savory crust) 23/25 and Overall Impression - Delicious! 33/35 = 93 Points
