Description

Details

JS 93 WE 90 Pts - According to James Sucking - "Outstanding aromas of currant, spice and walnuts follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Refined and integrated. Well crafted. Made from grapes grown in the Apalta subregion of Colchagua. Certified organic. Drink in 2018."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "Big, bulky, ripe aromas of cassis and blackberry come with a hint of cedar and spice. This Cab shows a clampy, tannic mouthfeel and loamy, ultraripe flavors of blackberry and cassis. Fudge, mocha and blackberry flavors drive the finish on this ripe wine from a hot vintage."

According to Wine Spectator - "The red currant, blackberry and dark plum flavors are fresh and inviting. Spicy midpalate, with dark chocolate and tarragon details on the finish. Drink now through 2017."

Tasting Notes - "Deep red with dark purple hints. Dense nose full of black and red fruit aromas such as plums; dry tea leaves and tobacco flavors. Good tannic structure. Concentrated body with balance and length. Round mid palate with a long lasting finish." 91% Cabernet Sauvignon; 9% Cabernet Franc.

Love it
Tried this wine in Scotland and fell in love. I'm a cab drinker and have always preferred cabs on the sweeter less dry side and this one is excellent.
