Lush and juicy, with a great nose of cherries and berry fruit. Beautiful balance, with fairly soft tannins for a Cab of this quality, and I would probably drink this on its own or with some nice cheese. Very smooth, but has complex flavors and a long finish. Just delicious. Definitely give this one at least an hour in the decanter.

Flavor of ripped dark berry, flower, a hint of cassis. Constrained tannin and smooth after. Very fluty and not heavy. Can enjoy right after you opened the bottle.

Farbe: dunkles, sattes Rot. Wunderschöne Fruchtaromen (schwarze Johannisbeeren, Brombeeren), zarte Schokoladennote und jugendliche Tannine, feinsüsser Abgang.

The fruit is darker with a quality nose of cedar, leather, espresso, and black currants. The wine's texture is supple and there is enough tannin to support 2-3 years of cellaring. This well-made Cabernet can be enjoyed through 2020.

Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby red color, the expression of cabernet sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. Lots of berries fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this excellent wine are sourced from Santa Cruz (Colchagua), from the now famous “La Finca de Apalta” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile. The wine is a deep ruby red colour, and the expression of Cabernet Sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. There are lots of berries, fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins are evident. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.
