Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon shows why Chile is becoming such a great region to find rich, expressive, and good value wines. Full of beautifully ripe berry fruit, spice, and cassis, this is the perfect "house red" - get it while you can.

Origin: Maipo Valley, Puente Alto Vineyard
Soil: Alluvial, stony, poor in nutrients and highly permeable due to the gravel sub-soil.
Aging: 14 months in one, two, and three years old French oak barrels, then aged for a further six months after bottling.
Color: Dark ruby red.
Bouquet: Fine red black currants and black plums; with hints of toasty french oak.
Taste: Appetizing; smooth, well-rounded and tasteful. Well balance, high fineness and long finish.
Enjoy With: Red meats, barbecue, cheese, pasta.
