    Winemaker Notes

    Dark red in color with aromas of red fruits and notes of spice. Elegant on the palate with round tannins and a long consistent finish.

    Ideal with red meats, savory pastries and mixed grills.

    The name Las Mulas pays homage to the animals (mules) without which this wine would not exist. This singular wine is made with the finest organic grapes grown in the poorest soils from Miguel Torres' vineyards in Chile. With Las Mulas, we go back to the past to rediscover ancient ecological techniques: vineyards harvested by hand with no chemicals or pesticides which can interfere in the natural process. We rediscover the natural state where the vine grows alongside various plants and insects creating a balanced ecosystem. In Chile, before the mechanization of the vineyards, mules were commonly put to work. The name Las Mulas ("The Mules") is meant to reflect the hard work that goes into our wines while alluding to the fact that we avoid fertile soils in order to obtain the maximum expression.

    Miguel Torres, Curico Valley, Chile
    Image of winery
    Miguel Torres Chile was founded in 1979 by the Torres family of Spain. Torres has produced wine in Spain since the 17th century. The Miguel Torres Chile winery encompasses more than 400 hectares of wineyards planted in five different properties each with unique climatic characteristics. This enables the winery to cultivate distinct varieties and to allow their intense expressions to develop. Miguel Torres is recognized for introducing new technologies to Chile, which have contributed to the growth of Chilean wines over the past 30 years. As of 2010, Miguel Torres Maczassek, a fifth generation Torres winemaker who moved to Chile with his family in order to maintain the tradition and passion for winemaking that the Torres family has demonstrated throughout the years.

    Curico Valley

    View all wine

    Bordering the Coastal Range in the west, and stretching as far east as the foothills of the Andes, the Curicó Valley has two major mesoclimates that allow it the potential to offer a great diversity of high quality wines. In the east around Molina and north of the Claro River, the chilling winds coming off of the Andes make this part of the valley cooler. In the west, the Coastal Range protects inland wine growing areas from the Pacific Ocean, making it hotter and drier. The valley can support a large range of grape varieties within these climatic variations.

    In 1979 Miguel Torres, Spain’s largest family-owned producer of premium wine based in Penedès in northeastern Spain, invested heavily in the area. By introducing many modern technologies, Torres put the Curicó Valley on the international wine map and strengthened Chile's presence in the global wine market.

    Curicó is one of the southern appellations of the greater Central Valley wine growing region, which includes from north to south: Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
