Notes about product
High-altitude vineyards planted at the foot of the Andes in Chile’s most prestigious and emblematic zone for Cabernet Sauvignon. In this 2014 vintage, the spring was cold and rainy with frosts that reduced fruit set and lowered the natural yields. The hot, dry weather during the summer and fall
resulted in a healthy, ripe, and concentrated production and enabled harvesting to begin earlier than usual with exceptional grapes that will deliver concentrated wines full of flavor.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at 86ºF (30ºC) followed by a 6-day post-fermentation process. Upon completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months for greater complexity and structure.
Complex and intense. Black fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, and plums lend great typicity accompanied by a touch of dark chocolate. A wine with tremendous concentration of firm, ripe tannins with a mouth-filling palate and a persistent, fruity finish. Enjoy with beef or lamb stew. Also excellent with aged cheeses.
