Wow! One for the cellar. Raspberrry, plum, clove and vanilla, packed around a tightly knit core of tannins. Surprisingly structured and compact for this value range. Balanced with plenty of ripe fruit the finish is chewy and promising a great wine for the future. Everything in the right place in this tasty young red.

You won't mistake Antiguas Reservas for Napa or Bordeaux. This is a traditionally made Chilean red, held in oak years longer than common, and replete with exotic aromas of spice, coffee, smoke and vanilla to add to its flavors of red raspberry and cherry that are generous, if a little rustic. At first blush, it's lighter than many Cabs, but the tannin and flavor builds on the palate.

A splendid value. Aged in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels, it is dark ruby-colored and sports a nose of tar, licorice, coconut, as well as spiced blackberries. This medium-bodied wine has superb purity, freshness, and richness. It coats the palate with loads of red cherry, blackberry, spice, and mocha flavors. In addition, its extensive finish reveals loads of ripe tannin which will assure this extremely well-made effort a long life. Projected maturity: now-2012.

WA 91pts - Winemaker Notes - This elegant Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French oak for 12 months and rested in bottle for a further 6 months prior to its release. It shows hint of spices, cherries and blackcurrants and is a perfect match for roasts and grills. Allow to breathe before serving.

Blackberry, blueberry and a light toasted aroma, the taste has ablackberry basis assembled with laurel and tobacco leaves. The tanninsprovide an additional richness in the after taste mainly of ripe fruits,blended with a toasted flavour. It can be enjoyed now or kept for additionaltaste for a decade at least.

The deeply colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reserva offers toast, spice box, cedar, and black currant scents. This is followed by a spicy, ripe, firm wine with layers of flavor. With very good depth and a long finish, this superb value should evolve for several more years but is hard to resist now. Kudos to Cousino-Macul for this significant upgrade to their portfolio.

Cousiño-Macul is a 927 acre estate, including vineyards and an historic 19th century park on the hillside sloping up to the Andes. The vineyard was first planted in the 16th century, but it was not until the Cousio family purchased the Macul estate in the 1850s that French cuttings of Bordeaux varieties were planted there (in 1860). Since that time, Cousiño-Macul has developed a reputation as the greatest vineyard in Chile, based primarily on the capacity of its Cabernet to develop as it ages. The love of their wines and pride in their family is a long tradition, keeping the highest quality of their wines year after year.
