      Description

      Nestled in the Chilean foothills of the Andes, in the heart of the Maipo Valley, the Haras estate is a partnership between the Antinori family of Tuscany and the Matte family of Chile. The Haras estate is known for producing both award-winning thoroughbred horses, as well as wines. In the unique horseshoe-shaped winery, Haras has produces this six-bottle collection that exemplify the outstanding balance and diversity Chilean wine has achieved in recent years.

      Wine Gift Collection Includes Two Bottles of Each:

      • Haras Estate Chardonnay
        Chilean Chardonnay has become quite popular, differing slightly from the buttery, oaky Chardonnay of California. The Haras Esate Chardonnay is fresh and lively on the palate, with beautiful grapefruit flavors, crisp acidity, and a juicy, persistent finish.

      • Haras Estate Carmenere
        With its roots in the Bordeaux region of France, Carmenere has made a distinguished name for itself in Chile. This dark and rich Carmenere is smooth, with soft tannins, and perfectly balanced on the palate.

      • Haras Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
        Much like Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon made its way from Bordeaux, becoming a star varietal of Chile. This Estate Cabernet shines with full and spicy aromas of dark chocolate, cedar and rosemary, with complex red and dark fruit flavors on the palate.

      • Printed insert that describes the featured wines

        Due to the popularity of this gift, vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with the current vintage.

      Napa Valley

      View all wine

      One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

      Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

      Bordeaux Blends

      View all wine

      One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

      In the Glass

      Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

      Perfect Pairings

      Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

      Sommelier Secret

      While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
