Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
A gloriously rich and robust Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Cabernet France grapes in the blend from one of Chile's best-known and most-respected wineries. Classic aromas of cassis, blackberry and blackcurrant are wrapped luxuriously n vanilla smoke. Savoury, meaty and juicy with full-bodied weight and layers of dark fruit flavour. Concentrated, rich and deep. Long finish, great structure. Pair with grilled meats.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: herbed steaks, beef fajitas.

Reviews and Ratings
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Dark inky and brooding with a deep ruby colour. This $20 red wine of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon(85%) comes from only the best grapes. Hand picked and digitally sorted for size and colour. Only 1000 cases produced and will reward after 6-8 years in the cellar. Juicy black fruit, leather, toast, mint, licorice. Full-bodied with medium+ acidity and youthful tannins. May 2015 "Wine of the Month" at the LCBO.
Decant at least 2 hours. Serve with finer cuts of red beef.
Tasted: May 2015
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The hand picked grapes aged in French oak barrels have produced a lovely wine. The rich red fruity wine is well balanced with hints of pepper and spice. It would be great paired with steak or lamb.
|Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Earthy and beautiful funky notes of bell peppers with cassis and ripe black cherry notes. In the mouth, full body with a silky mouthfell. and a wonderful acidity. Beautiful vivid blackberry flavors and a exquisite final.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Made from hand-picked grapes for a fuller fruit expression. A raspberry jam nose followed by a lovely deep raspberry cassis palate, subtle mint, mocha and slight hint of green pepper. Harmonious tannins and very smooth satisfying dark berry finish.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful deep rich ruby colour. Aromas of cassis, black currant, black pepper and a rich smokiness. On the palate the currant and cassis come through as well as a hint of mocha. Smooth with a nice long finish. Enjoy this with a beautiful steak.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
White peper, sage, vanilla, and cassis aromas with flavours of cassis, black cherry, and spices. Nice round tannnins and an acidity to match the fruit make this a very smooth Cab Sauv.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Blackberry and licorice on the nose and palate with some spice in the flavor.
|The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this full-bodied red wine are sourced from the Don Maximiano vineyard nestled in the Chilean Aconcagua Valley, which enjoys a Mediterranean climate and results in great phenolic ripeness of the grapes adding complexity and character to the wine. The grapes are hand-picked and selected and then fermented and aged in French oak barrels for one year. - Community Wine Reviews|
