Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot

It's hard to tell where the variety ends and the vineyard begins. Our 2006 Alcance says El Maíten in one breath and Cabernet Sauvignon in the next. The color is deep; the flavors are ripe and redolent of black fruit, mocha, cherries and plums; the tannins are rich, round and pleasing."
- Marcela Chandía, Winemaker

"Scents of chocolate dust carry through this elegant cabernet..."

About Calina:

Calina's bold innovations in the vineyard and cellar are setting a new standard of excellence for winemaking in Chile. Calina uses the famed vineyard practices and winemaking technology developed by Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates in California, while sourcing the best fruit from the emerging top Chilean coastal appellations. This unique philosophy means Chilean coastal appellations. This unique philosophy means Calina wines always show signature fruit flavors, depth and complexity. Most importantly, they are recognized year after year as "Best Buys" from various leading wine critics. These awards support the Calina initiative - to create wine of inimitable quality at an affordable price.
