Natalie's Score: 90/100
The vines for this robust red wine are planted in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The estate has specialized in making Cabernet Sauvignon for more than 50 years. A full-bodied Chilean red wine with attractive aromas of black fruit and toasty oak. Pair with grilled meats.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: meat pizza, grilled Portobello mushroom burgers, lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin.

Reviews and Ratings
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A powerhouse Cab Sauv - vinified with fruit from the Intriga estate, vines aged over 50 years in Maipo Valley, Chile. 14.5% ABV. If this wine could talk, it would scream for a pairing with a thick cut AAA rare steak with a side of butter sautéed mushrooms. Well balanced, medium plus - integrated tannins, fruit, acidity. Full bodied and ready to enjoy. Drinking well at present. A huge value for money. Accessibly priced and well structured. A buy by the case option for value seekers. Blackberry, strawberry, cassis, eucalyptus. Tasted 2014 vintage Dec 2017. 92 points.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This is a well made Maipo Cabernet. Decent amount of oak. Maipo Cab is grown on alluvial rocks and always has a nice brambley exoticism to it. There is a vegetal character that comes off sometimes like mint.
Deep, concentrated purplish-ruby.
Cassis, pain grille, brambley blackberry, camphor, pen ink, and dried herb.
It's hefty, but not imbalanced on the palate. There is plenty of juiciness. Lots more blackberry, cassis and cranberry too. Chocolate, vanilla, and a touch more dried herb.
Great Chilean stuff. Good woth grilled meats, mushrooms, and charcuterie.
Could age 5-7 years nicely.
