Vina San Pedro Gato Negro Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review
Big blackberries and plum preserves. Full-bodied and supple. A knock-it-back party pleaser. Terrific price. 4.3/5 Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: beef, lamb, pork, duck, game meat, cheeses.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Molina Vineyard. VII Region, Chile (Central Valley)
San Pedro and San Miguel Vineyard: Broad daytime-night time temperature differentials are perfect for good phenolic ripeness (tannins and anthocyanins).
Harvest usually takes place in early April at 23–25° brix with yields of 12 to 15 tons per hectare.
Upon reaching the cellar, the grapes are cold macerated for 24 hours at 10º–12°C (50ºF–54°F). Fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures below 28°C (82ºF), with 3–4 daily pumpovers to ensure good color and fresh fruit flavors. The must is racked off its skins part-way through the process and fermentation continues with clean must. The entire process is aimed at producing wines with plenty of fruit intensity and a soft mouthfeel.
Dark ruby-red in colour, this is a very intense Cabernet full of red fruit aromas, such as berries, cherries, cassis that meld perfectly with sweet vanilla and coconut notes. Medium-bodied with a fresh mouthfeel, the wine is slightly rich, with soft tannins and a long, pleasing finish.
