This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced primarily from Montes’ Finca Apalta Estate vineyard with some additions from their Marchigüe Estate vineyard. These two unique vineyards feature granite-rich soils in differing degrees of decomposition. Both have considerable variation in the clay content, depth, and organic matter from the influence of erosion and deposits from local rivers over time. The soils are generally deep in the flat areas and thinner at the foot of the mountains and at higher elevations. Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on flat or slightly sloping ground where the soil is deeper and has a moderate capacity for moisture retention.

Tasting Note

Deep, intense violet-red color. Aromas of figs and blackberries, are accompanied by notes of crème de cassis and spicy black pepper above a backdrop of tobacco. The palate is well balanced and has generous volume, rich acidity, and very round tannins that lend structure to a long, elegant finish.

Food Pairing

Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lambchops with Cabernet and mushroom sauce.
