Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon come from the Puente Alto Vineyard in the Maipo Valley, Chile's most celebrated wine region.

Color: Bright, deep red.

Bouquet: Cherry, chocolate, black tar and smoke.

Taste: A smooth, almost silky texture with a long finish. Concentrated and full bodied.

The wine complements steaks, roasts, pasta dishes with robust sauces, and strong cheeses.
