This rich and velvety wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère and Petit Verdot.
Like the bull on the label and Salvador Amenábar, the talented young artist who painted him, Calcu wines are exuberant and full of possibility, with each vintage revealing a different aspect of the Colchagua Valley's dynamic character.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva contains 10% Carmenere and 10% Petit Verdot in its makeup. It displays aromas of spice box, incense, damp earth, and black currant. This sets the stage for a medium-bodied, firm, spicy wine that in nicely proportioned and lengthy. This very good value will also deliver enjoyment over the next 3-4 years.
Bright purple. Cherry and dark chocolate on the pungent nose. The palate offers spicy black and blue fruit flavors, with notes of menthol and cracked pepper building with air. This tangy, sharply focused midweight finishes with firm grip and a slight dry edge.
