Winemaker's Notes:

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.

Deep, dark-ruby color, this wine displays complex aromas of blackberry and plum fruit with a generous amount of cassis and hints of cedar and baking spices. Fullbodied with elegant tannins, it shows luscious flavors of blackberry, currant, soy and sweet oak spices. The solid core of delicious concentrated black fruits is framed by light toasty oak and ripe tannin. The supple and seamless theme continues into the long, ultrasmooth finish A wine for roasted, or braised red meats. Also perfect paired with marinated venison, or steak au poivre.

About Cousino Macul:

In 2006, Cousiño-Macul celebrated its 150th anniversary. The Cousiño family's wine estate in Santiago was established in 1856. Five years ago, the Cousiños moved many of their vines to a new estate at Buin, and built a new winery there. Few wine producers have the opportunity to make a completely new start, incorporating the best of their age-old experience, their unique vines from their personal greenhouse and the most contemporary technology available.

As the technology continues to advance in the vineyards and in the wineries around the world, Cousiño Macul has seized this opportunity and taken a grand leap into the future. Although moving quickly into the future, they take with them the most important part of their long history - their genetic plant material that was originally brought into Chile in 1863. The Cousiño's vineyard and winery in Macul became the proudest achievement of the family. The new vineyard and winery in Buin are now in the hands of the sixth generation.
