Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Sergio Correa creates his Viña Tarapacá Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon in a style reminiscent of the great Cabernets from Californias Napa Valley. These wines have much to offer while relatively young, yet still retain tremendous ageing potencial. This Reserva is highly aromatic, offering black cherry peppercorn, coffee and anise aromas which increase in intensity as the wine breathes. Ripe fruit flavours of cassis and cherries are balanced on the palate with toasted oak nuances and chocolatey notes. Firm tannins give good structure and the finish is luxuriant and long.
