Chakana Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Member Review by Argovino:

Ever stick your nose in a glass only to be confronted with rich tomato sauce - the kind some folks call gravy - with hints of seafood? Frutti di mare in a glass, anyone? These uncanny aromas continue, if modestly, in the mouth, where those tomatoes turn into sweet jam and the nautical note just lingers. You can guess the food pairings already for this enjoyable if slightly odd wine. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=1335)

Argentinian telecommunications professional Juan Pelizzatti always had a passion for wine. When the country’s economic crisis hit its peak in 2001, with nothing to lose, he decided to take his family savings and continue the winemaking legacy started with his Italian grandfather. He walked the province of Mendoza in search of suitable land to cultivate, and found 150 ha of it in Agrelo in Lujan de Cuyo. A few old Malbec vines were still alive, and so he sustained these as well as planted new ones, thus founding Chakana. The name means “Southern Cross” and signifies the bridge between Mother Earth and the spiritual world in ancient Incan culture. Vines are planted at a nearly exact 45 degree North-West axis, which not only has spiritual significance in Incan culture, but ensures grapes aren’t hit with direct sun exposure at the hottest part of the day, around 3pm. With careful attention to detail like this, grapes are given the chance to achieve optimal flavor balance and structure. Dry red, white and rosé wines are produced as the Chakana flagship range, reserva and Chakana Estate Selection.  Read less

Young, but quite soft tannins. Easy to understand. Concentrated. Very drinkable.

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2007 - Chakana: Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2007 - Rotwein von ChakanaDer Chakana Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2007 zeigt eine rubinrote Farbe im Glas. Sein Duft wird bestimmt von Kirsch- und Cassisaromen, die schön mit Minz- und Schokoladennoten verbunden werden. Dieser delikate und gut ausbalancierte Wein beeindruckt auch durch elegante, samtige Tanninen und einem Nachhall voller Frucht- und Eichenspuren. Sehr empfehlenswert zu Braten.
