Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color. This wine has a bright nose, with focused aromas of cranberry and plum. Nice floral lift on the palate, with more red fruit flavors (cherry, currant) and a hint of garrigue. Finishes with medium tannins and balanced acidity. Made with 100% Cabernet Franc.
My Notes:

About Garage Wine Co.:

Garage Wine Co. began in 2008 with the idea of making wine on a small scale, a personal scale, by hand with the family. It was (and still is!) physical work, and a therapeutic complement to the hustle and bustle of the new millenium. Few in Chile, back then, knew what a "garagiste" was, nor were they familiar with the gringo tradition of celebrated companies having began "in the garage." Viñas in Chile were large affairs, named after saints and owned by clubby families with long names full of double rr’s who presided over a rather closed circle. The founders of Garage Wine Co. patented the name anyway and went to work, quietly but surely, content to make wine barrel by barrel and selling it amongst friends and family.
