Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense ruby red, with blackish violet tones.

Aroma: It shows quite a lot of fresh red fruit, with outstanding berries and cherry, which mix with toasted and mocha aromas, and subtle vanilla notes.

Palate: It is a complex, very well structured and balanced wine, with soft and round tannins, which tend over to a long and persistent finish.

"A nice, simple, easy to handle Cabernet is what you're getting here. Root beer, blackberry and spice aromas work the nose, followed by slightly medicinal but generally big and bold black-fruit flavors. Generally speaking, this is a very good everyday Cab that won't hurt the wallet."

About Vina San Pedro:

Founded in 1865 by the Correa Albano brothers, Viña San Pedro is today the second largest Chilean wine exporter and the country's third biggest winery. The winery is located in Curicó Valley, where San Pedro owns one of the largest continuous area of vineyards in South America, with 1,200 hectares. In total San Pedro has over 2,500 hectares planted all along the Central Valley. Since 1990 the company has long term contracts and has been acquiring vineyards in Chile's other main viticulture valleys, such as Leyda, Colchagua, Maipo, San Antonio, Casablanca, Elqui and Limarí. Today these vineyards provide perfect conditions for several varieties.
