Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A very fresh array of spiced-pastry aromas, across some ripe red plums and berries. The palate has a very fresh, lithe and juicy feel with terrific freshness and concentration of summer berries. Drink or hold.
Dense, dark aromas of raisin and blackberry set up a full and chunky palate with a creamy texture. Mildly salty berry flavors include a whack of oak spice, while oak-led flavors settle in on a finish that tastes slightly baked and feels warm.
Spicy red fruit lasts through this tight and narrow cabernet, with fl avors of black cherry, bay and eucalyptus lengthening the wine’s fresh juiciness. It’s simple and savory, built for sliced fl ank steak. Best Buy

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.
The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.
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.
