Winemaker's Notes:

Sweet and toasty, with easy-drinking juicy plum and currant flavors that pick up some nice grip on the finish. A solid little Cab value, from Chile.

About Aresti:

Aresti Wine of Chile is a family-owned winery that was founded in 1951, when Vicente Aresti and his father-in-law, Alfredo López, established a winery in the Curicó Valley. In 1999, the Aresti family began making wine under their own label, acquiring new land and investing in technology. Today, three generations of the Aresti family dedicate their efforts and knowledge to producing widely recognized wines of the highest caliber. Part of the Aresti winery history is depicted on the labels of the icon Family Collection line, with Alberto Valenzuela Llanos' 1908 painting entitled "Harvest at the Bellavista Hacienda," which won a gold medal in an exhibition in the Belle Arts Museum in Santiago during Chile’s centennial celebration. Don Vicente acquired the painting and turned it into the symbol of the winery. In fact, it won another gold medal in an international wine label competition (Premier Print Award), when it competed against 4,500 other labels from every corner of the world.
