Made from a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this is a bright and juicy wine full of red fruits and spring accents with well polished and integrated tannins.

About Vina Penalolen:

This winery was founded by the superstar winemaker of Chile, Ignacio Recabarren, and vineyard owner Ricardo Peña. 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.
