Cousiño-Macul Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dark garnet in color, this Cabernet offers aromas and flavors highlighting red fruits and spices. Bing cherry, red currants, and boysenberry fruits predominate in the aroma and carry over into the flavors. Subtle mint, bay leaf and spices come through in the bright, refreshing finish.

straw colored, drier than most reislings, but you still get a hint of the characteristic sweetness. I would say more pineapple than tangerine, with a touch of spice on the tongue.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reserva remains one of the finest Cabernet values anywhere (the price has remained unchanged for years). Fragrant black currants and blackberry aromas promise complexity with several years of additional bottle age. Nicely structured on the palate, this elegant, Bordeaux-like Cabernet will evolve for a minimum of five years and drink well through 2025.

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.

A cabernet in a classic style with notes of mocha, dried cherries, coffee and a bit of menthol. The palate is fresh with the soft elegance of fine, firm tannins. For roast short ribs.

Opaque purple in colour, this Estate Cabernet offers aromatics of ripen blackberries, plum, herbs and cacao. Medium in body and light tannin, it captures the essence of Maipo Valley fruit. In the mouth, the flavours continue the blackberry-blueberry themes with hints of cassis and black olives. Its lingering finish echoes the black fruits and ends on a tangy cherry brightness. With time in the glass, this Cabernet unfolds beautifully, suggesting it can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for 2 to 5 years.

Excellent quality from one of the most consistent wineries in Chile. This is a full-bodied, dark-fruited, earthy red wine with ripe tannins.

This stunning value is medium to dark ruby-colored and boasts a gorgeous nose of red cherries, currants, cassis, and roses. Medium-bodied and possessing lovely amplitude, it coats the palate with seamless layers of raspberries, red/black cherries, currants, and hints of mocha. This silky, highly detailed and complex wine additionally possesses an extremely supple and long finish. It is a Bordeaux look-alike at a fraction of the price. Readers should run, not walk, to acquire this beauty buy the case. Projected maturity: 2008.
