    Region: Chile, South America

    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 98233

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Deep inky red with purple hints.

    Nose : Intense red fruit aromas, cassis and red currant combined with light touches of tobacco and Provence herbs. Very good oak and fruit balance.

    Mouth: Intense attack followed by juicy and round tannins. Good acidity, well balanced with structure and a long finish.

    Pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18°. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep ruby-red. Dark berries, iron, smoky Indian spices and cracked pepper on the nose. Velvety in texture, offering sweet blackcurrant and blueberry flavors and supple tannins. Turns livelier and gains structure with air, taking a turn to zestier red fruits while retaining power. This pure, juicy cabernet finishes with excellent clarity and a strong echo of flowers and spices.

    Steady more than flashy or exotic. There is no shortage of cassis, berry and plum aromas, and the palate is packed, tannic and brings the full allotment of berry, plum and cassis flavors. Right now it’s a bit rough and tough, but that means it should hold for several more years.
