Savoury, cedar-rich Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. An extraordinary value. Luscious and full-bodied with layers of pleasure. Fleshy ripe black plums and dark spice. Yes please! Pair with ribs and steak.

Reviews and Ratings
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful Maipo Valley Cab Sauv. Big, playful and enticing aromatics meet a juicy, floral, herbal, earthy palate. Medium-long finish with persistence of blackberry, leather, black liquorice, mint, violet petals. Integrating well. Well balanced medium acidity, fruit, integrated alcohol, medium tannins which are settling nicely. Great value, accessibly priced and approachable. Well built for pairing with bbq season, steaks, gourmet burgers or beef arrachera tacos. Tasted 2015 vintage in March 2018 decanted 2h. 92 points
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The bell pepper and cedar notes are prominent but it's never a bad thing from this producer. Rich fruit and spice wrap themselves around the core of melted licorice and herbs. Lovely. 91 Points.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Great value Cabs are to be found in Chile. Lots of ripe red fruit, mint, and eucalyptus on the nose along with hints of vanilla. Smooth and fruit forward on the palate, with some medium tannin that and nice texture and extend the finish. Enjoy with a nice grilled steak.
|Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Intense aromas of dark fruits; blackberry and ripe cherry. Smoke, vanilla and cassis. Full flavoured with more dark fruit; cooked blackberries and cherries. Tannins are evident but smooth with medium acidity. Long fruit finish. A great bbq wine -ribs or steak - you choose! Tasted May 6/2018
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Nice mint, eucalyptus nose. Good black fruits, medium structure and medium finish. A nice chilean cab for the price for daily drinking
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:|
An exquisite bouquet of floral (violet), red cherry, mint, and earthy underbrush aromas up front followed a lavish concentration of cherry, ripe plum, cassis, anise and dark chocolate flavours. Tannins are developing yet integrating well and balanced by mouthwatering acidity and a long flavourful finish. This beauty of wine worthy of about 7-10 more years in the cellar. If drinking now, decant for 2 hours prior to serving and enjoy with grilled prime rib. Tasted March 2018 by @sommsosa @ bespoketastings.ca
|Vina Tarapaca Gran Reserva (2015) is a great value Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley. Savoury with ripe black plums and dark spices, pair this full-bodied Cab with smoky barbequed ribs. - Community Wine Reviews|
