Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes, this cool-climate Casablanca Valley wine has aromas of red currant, cherry and blueberry with hints of herb and subtle floral notes. The texture is juicy and elegant thanks to well integrated spicy tannins. The finish has red berries and spicy dried fruit. Aged in French oak for 15 months.

The wine is estate grown and bottled with all the fruit harvested from the winery's own two vineyards. Viña Peñalolén is dedicated to producing the best expression of fruit and soil from the Maipo and Casablanca Valley's, resulting in wines of pedigree and complexity.
