The Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard is made from grapes hand-picked in Errazuriz' prestigious Don Maximiano Estate, located in the Aconcagua Valley, a semi-desert region where the hot summer days are cooled by afternoon breezes. The vines are planted on a 5-degree slope with gravely, sandy clay soils which drain very well. The high day-night temperature differences of the Don Maximiano Estate slows ripening and helps create intensity of flavors and concentration. It is difficult to find a better quality Sauvignon from anywhere in the world at this price point.
Bright ruby-red in color with an intense and attractive nose that features aromas of ripe red and black fruits with a balsamic, spicy edge. The palate is juicy and well-balanced with tannins that are firm yet friendly. The fruit is echoed on the palate where it melds beautifully with spicy, chocolaty notes, and ends on a pleasingly balanced finish.
