Winemaker Notes

This wine is obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the San Pedro vineyards located in the Lontué Valley.

Colour: this wine presents an intense colour that is concentrated and dark, anticipating part of the aroma and flavour to come.

Aroma: intense, ripe, spices blended with oak, coffee, and black fruit.

Palate: well-bodied, good, concentration, the tannins make their presence known but keep in harmony with the rest of the components. This is a long wine, very expressive, but serious. This is an elegant classic Cabernet. Suitable for 5 to 8 years of further aging.

"Harvested from dry farmed vines 50 years old or more, aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, then in bottle for a year before release, this wine gets coddled from start to finish. 'Smells lovely, with cedar, tea and cassis mingling effortlessly on the nose. In the mouth, it's bigger and fleshier than the '99 or '00, with a long finish filled with sweet fruit."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2001 Cabo de Hornos Cabernet Sauvignon was still sourced from Curicó and has a classical profile. At this time, there was an idea in Chile that all even vintages were good and that odd vintages were weak. So, 2001 was one of those forgotten vintages sandwiched between two "famous" years, 2000 and 2002. This is subtle and elegant, with that note of curry that I found in the previous years. Classical, polished and elegant, a delicious Cabernet with very good balance.

Vina San Pedro, South America
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.

One of South America’s most important wine-producing countries, Chile is a reliable source of both budget-friendly wines and premium bottlings. Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile some time in the 1550s. But Chile’s modern wine industry is largely the result of heavy investment from the 1990s.

Long and narrow, Chile is geographically isolated, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east and the Atacama desert to the north. These natural borders allowed Chile to avoid the disastrous phylloxera infestation in the late 1800s and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted (as is the case in much of the wine producing world).

Chile’s vineyards vary widely in climate and soil type from north to south. The Coquimbo region in the far north contains the Elqui and Limari Valleys, where minimal rainfall and intense sunlight are offset by chilly breezes from the Humboldt Current. While historically focused solely on Pisco production, today this area finds success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Aconcagua region contains the eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry and home to full-bodied red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot—as well as Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley, which focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The Central Valley is home to the Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys, which produce a wide variety of red and white wines. Maipo in particular is known for Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape. In the up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

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, Malbec and 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.
