Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 5% Carmenere and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Color: Clean ruby red with purple shadows.

Nose: Expressive aromas with ripe red fruits like plums, dry figs and notes of black spices.

Mouth: The palate is elegant, supported by a soft structure with fine and delicate tannins. Nice persistence.

Service and Food Pairing: Open and leave to breathe minimum for an hour and serve at 16-18°C. Ideal companion of all red meat, winter soups and of course Barbecue!

Critical Acclaim

"A perennial Best Buy Cab. The nose is smoky and rock-solid, with clean berry fruit and muscle. The palate is lively and secure, with balance, firm tannins, proper acidity and a tasty mix of cocoa, herbs and berry fruit. Finishes on the spot."

Fruity and sweet with a slightly earthy background to the nose. After an hour at room temperature in a decanter I find this wine to have a light sweet tasting start followed by a fairly bold earthy base finishing with a slightly acidic mix of fruit that doesn't dissapear too quickly

I would have labeled this "Smooth and Supple", not "Big and Bold". This is a very nice Cab blend, for the price. The nose is clean fruit - not overpowering. On the palate, I found a nice balance of tannins and acidity. If you let it open up for an hour (in a decanter), you'll be rewarded with a long finish with slight earth tones. I only gave it three stars because I personally prefer a bigger Cab, but if you are in the market for a smooth, easy drinking-ready now Cab., all at a very reasonable price - look no further.

(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,...
