Winemaker's Notes

This is a bright and juicy wine full of red fruits and spring accents with well polished and integrated tannins. Always excellent press.

Critical Acclaim

"Features a core of powerful currant, cherry and raspberry flavors, with subtle minty notes. Offers sinewy tannins midpalate, balanced by a mix of dried meat, olive and wild herb. Pepper and spice accents define the elegant finish."

I bought this because the price was right ($20) and the WS rating was 91. I've found that they have similar tastes to mine. We had a glass last night and it was a great compliment to steak. We use a wine preserver gas system to save the wine for more glasses and we were very pleased with this choice. After a visit to Chile a few years ago, we found that most Chilean wines are good value and good wines.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
