This dark red balances racy wild berry and cassis flavors with full yet fine tannins, showing layers of toasty oak, smoke and baking spice. Polished, with a long, savory aftertaste of spice, cured olive and underbrush. Drink now through 2017.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Cabernet Sauvignon
King of the 'noble grapes,' Cabernet Sauvignon is used to produce some of the world's greatest wines. It thrives in warm climates like Napa Valley and Bordeaux, where the ripe fruit displays distinctive blackcurrant flavors and often a hint of mint or cedar. Cabernet Sauvignon produces highly tannic but well-rounded wines that are ideal for aging. It is often blended with Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with results ranging from medium-bodied to heavier, full-bodied wines. View all our additional Cabernet Sauvignon items
Region :
Chile
Winemaking has been part of Chilean culture since the Spanish arrival in the 16th century. But it was only after phylloxera devastated most European vineyards – and Chile finally reversed its isolationist policy – that Chilean wine reached foreign shores. Now, excellent wines from Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and other Vitis vinifera grapes are being produced in Chile’s variable climate, and exported to the tune of over $6 million annually.
