Winemaker Notes

Syrah is without question the winery's signature bottling. Their 2005 Syrah won Decanter's prestigious International Syrah Trophy. Deep red color, full bodied with plums and black cherry flavors. An elegant and well-balanced wine that shows all the potential of Limari Valley. Great structure with remarkably long finish with good aging potential. A delicious wine from this premium region in Chile - Limari Valley.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

Syrah does surprisingly well in Chile's newly developed cooler regions with characteristics of France’s northern Rhone Valley. The 2010 Syrah Reserva offers up aromas of game, bacon, lavender, and blueberry. Dense, layered, ripe, and flavorful, this excellent value could easily be mistaken for a quality Crozes-Hermitage. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
