/ Central Valley
These Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were discovered in choice sites in Chile’s Colchagua and Maipo Valleys, then handpicked and hand-selected. The 17-year-old vineyards are planted in clay and alluvial soils. A dry climate and proximity to the Andes produce wide day/night temperature swings, maintaining the grapes’ acidity levels while encouraging full flavor ripening. Grapes are destemmed before undergoing a cold maceration for three days to extract black fruit notes. The must is fermented at 28 to 31°C (82 to 88°F) with three pumpovers per day. After a total of 15 days’ skin contact, the wine is aged in 15% new oak barrels, 50% American/50% French for 5 months.
Aromas of black fruit and vanilla, loaded with flavors of ripe and juicy black fruit, combined with creamy tannins. Beautiful structure and texture framed with touches of chocolate and toffee from the oak aging. The wine will continue to develop and improve for up to five years.
A stealthy, silky wine, perfect for stewed and braised meats, grilled vegetables and righteous thievery.

about the grape +
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.

"The Seeker Cabernet Sauvignon is as enticing as reclaiming a gem, but not nearly so dangerous."
