Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 vintage represents the 79th year in which Cousiño-Macul has produced an Antiguas Reservas, the winery's signature wine. Since the debut in 1927, Antiguas Reservas has always been a limited selection of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon from the Cousiño-Macul estate vineyards. Over the years, Cousiño-Macul has maintained its classic style with this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon by combining New World ripeness with Old World elegance, finesse, and a framework to age long and well.

This wine is full of dark berry fruit aromas that give way to flavors of blackberry, blueberry and tobacco in the mouth. This is rich with a lingering finish full ripe fruit flavors. It can be enjoyed now or kept for additional taste for a decade at least.

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas is 100% varietal and saw time in barrique. It is purple-colored with a slightly brooding nose of black currant and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with some elegance, excellent depth, and savory flavors. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now. It will be at its best from 2010 to 2018."
-Wine Advocate

"A Cabernet in a classic style with notes of mocha, dried cherries, coffee and a bit of menthol. The palate is fresh with teh soft elegance of fine, firm tannins. For roast short ribs." 90 Points

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...

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
