A juicy, full-bodied Chilean Cabernet loaded with fleshy ripe purple and black plums, blackberry jam and toasty oak. Smooth and supple. The grapes for this wine are grown in the winery's Puente Alto Vineyard and Pirque Vineyard in the Maipo Valley. The wine was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels and in 5,000 litre foudres (extra large barrels). Pair with roast beef.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin, hard cheese, braised pork shanks, veal chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep purple in colour, with a vibrant ruby rim. The nose is quite elegant, with notes of violets, very ripe cassis, dark cherry and minty undertones. The palate strikes a good balance between fresh acidity, moderately firm structure and smooth, rounded structure. Sweet black fruit notes define the mid-palate. Firm, grainy tannins and pronounced cedar oak feature on the finish.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nose of ripe, dark fruits, casis. Medium(+) body, medium acid, and with some grippy tannin that gives a nice structure to the wine.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Robust cab sauv from the Maipo Valley. Generous black fruit aromas with hints of tar, smoke and cedar. Dark fruit comes through in the mouth with some herbal and spicy notes. Firm tannins. Nice acidity. I suggest braised ribs or grilled steak as a pairing- this big guy needs meat!
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Beautiful dark ruby colour, with aromatic notes of dark fruit like cherry, blackberry and plum, rose petals, minerality, mint and black licorice. This heavy hitter would be a great match for grilled meats.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Despite the wine's appetizing black plum, cherry, menthol and tobacco notes, there is an underlying barnyard and sous-bois side that is less desirable. Perhaps some unwelcome brett in the mix here. 88 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile's Maipo Valley presents aromas of ripe, black plum, blackberry preserves, cinnamon and forest floor. Full-bodied with grippy tannins. Plum and sour cherry notes and fresh herbs on the palate. Tasted January 15, 2017.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red. Cherries, plums, and pomegranate aromas with cinnamon and vanilla. Full bodied, dry, and grippy tannins. The plum taste has is long lasting and ends on a sour cherry note. Enjoy with grilled meats. Score 88. (S.Segard, reviewed Jan. 15, 2017.)
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bold spice and fleshy red fruit aromas threading way for rich ripe red & black berry fruit and baking flavours. This medium+ bodied Chilean Cab Sauv shows smooth integrated tannins, moderate acidity, and a long cherry and leathery (pithy) finish. Enjoy with Mesquite BBQ ribs. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in colour with aromas of plum, black cherry, cassis and a hint of mint. It has a medium finish with the plum and cherry flavours following through. The acidity and tannins are well balanced however the flavours are not as intense as the bouquet. This will pair well with red BBQed meats.
Paul Dube rated this wine as 45/100
