Reviews and Ratings

Karen rated this wine as 62/100
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Dark ruby red in color, 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.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

De couleur rubis foncé, c’est un Cabernet trcs intense rempli d’arômes de fruits rouges comme les baies, les cerises, le cassis qui se fusionnent r perfection avec les touches sucrées de vanille et de noix de coco. Corps moyen avec une sensation

Source: NB Magasin d'Alcool
VARIETY:
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

ORIGIN:
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:
Harvest usually takes place in early April at 23–25° brix with yields of 12 to 15 tons per hectare.

VINIFICATION:
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.

TASTING NOTES:
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.
