A full-bodied red wine made from high mountain vines and featuring enticing aromas of dark fruit and smoke on the nose. Supremely satisfying velvet texture with gorgeously fleshy black plums and dark berries. Perfect for dinner parties or casual gatherings. This winery sources its Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from four different vineyards in the Andes for greater complexity. Lovely spice and pepper on the finish. Try with hearty meat dishes and BBQ meats. This wine was made using a five-day cold maceration to concentrate it's flavours. Then is was aged in oak for a year. It's a blend of 4 vineyards and the grapes aside from cabernet sauvignon include: 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pepper steak, beef empanadas, chicken cacciatore, venison burgers, hard cheese.
