Big nose, vanilla base, fine blend of herbal elements, tobacco and sage, with intense, pure black currant fruit, this is really very fine, acidity a touch soft up front, then this turns quite medium bodied and decidedly more elegant than one might expect from the nose, really elegant with soft tannins and acid laying under the fruit on the palate, the palate delivers really fine purity of fruit, with lightly astringent tannins and a hint of sweet/pepperiness on the moderately long finish, lacks just a bit of complexity, watermelon seeds on the finale 89pts

Vale dos Vinhedos, BrazilCasa Valduga Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva is our first wine gem from Brazil, and we've chosen it very carefully from this sleeping giant of South America! Brazil is the fifth most populous country in the world and has become the fifth largest wine producer in the southern hemisphere (after Argentina, Australia, South Africa and Chile) despite traditionally not being a big wine-drinking country. But Brazil has a thriving middle class and interest in wine has been rapidly growing in the past two decades, boosting wine production aimed primarily at its fast-growing domestic market. Relatively little Brazilian wine has been exported to the US. The history of Brazilian winemaking began in 1875, when northern Italian immigrants settled in Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost state of Brazil, and began planting vines. The Valduga family arrived in 1875 and planted vineyards in the Vale dos Vinhedos. Today the winery is run by three Valduga brothers--Erielso, Juarez and Joao--who carry on their family's passion for wine. Casa Valduga has come to be regarded as the best winery in Brazil. This Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva is their flagship wine.Casa Valduga Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva is deep red-violet in color with full body and soft tannins. It offers an enticing bouquet of mature red fruits and spices and rich flavors of blackberry, cassis, plum and chocolate. Well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 8-10 years, it is long and smooth on the finish. Enjoy Valduga Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva with filet mignon, rack of lamb, venison, beef empanadas and aged cheeses.
