A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot.
Dark ruby red, with black cherry tones. Complex and intense nose with presence of black
berries, spices and soft notes of fine oak. Lively and bright red fruit. Sophisticated texture full
of pointedly firm tannins.
Serve Erasmo with meat, meat pies, game or wild boar cooked on an open fire. Generally with full flavored main courses.
"From the dry-farmed vineyards of Maule, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc is extremely austere when first poured. Oxygen reveals its lovely, bright red fruit and its sophisticated texture full of pointedly firm tannins. The long and profound finish calls for braised beef."
Wine & Spirits
"The 2005 Erasmo is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Purple-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of toasty oak, spice box, wood smoke, cassis, and black currants. This leads to a medium-bodied, elegant wine with enough concealed structure to evolve for 3-4 years. This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2011 to 2020.
The Wine Advocate
"Sleek and focused, with a solid core of red currant fruit surrounded by sweet spice, toast and mineral notes. Long, pure finish has the flesh to match its sinew. Best vintage yet for this Italian-owned project. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2010."
