These Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were discovered in choice sites in Chile’s Colchagua and Maipo Valleys: 20-year-old vineyards 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. The grapes are handpicked, hand-selected and destemmed before undergoing a cold maceration for three days to extract black fruit notes. The must is fermented at 82 to 86°F with three pumpovers per day. After a total of 20 days’ skin contact, the wine is aged in 20% new oak barrels, 80% French and 20% American for 10 months.

Harvest Note
The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon were hand harvested from the first week in April through the first week in May.
Tasting Note
Bright with an intense ruby-red color. The nose reveals a ripe plum and raspberry aroma accompanied by complex notes of cedar from oak ageing. This Cabernet Sauvignon fills the palate with round tannins and soft texture. Flavorful and juicy, with notes of black cherry and plum at the forefront. There are notes of soft, sweet vanilla that persist in the long finish.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with red meat, either grilled, roasted or sautéed. Try steak, pepper and onion fajitas, or on the lighter side a cheese plate with manchego cheese as the headliner.
