RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2015 was a warm and dry year with an early harvest that produced powerful wines, as seen in the 2015 Futa Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine designed with the help of Eric Boissenot looking for freshness and elegance. This year was complemented with 12% Cabernet Franc from the same granite and clay soils where the Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on an east-facing slope. It matured in French barriques for 22 months. I found this more focused than the 2014 that I tasted next to it. There is good ripeness and weight but no excess. The oak feels nicely integrated, and the tannins are fine-grained. It's classical and classy, with a lively spark in the palate.

This is a rich and composed cabernet with a wealth of cassis and dark plums, leading to a layered palate that builds the fruit in focused style.

Calcu Winery Video

Rodrigo Romero is the winemaker of an exciting line of small production wines made for everyday drinking but far more interesting and distinctive than most in its category. Calcu, which means "magician" in the local Mapuche language, was created to emphasize the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley with most of the estate fruit coming from the family’s cool Marchigüe vineyard.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
