Cousiño-Macul Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

`The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas is 100% varietal and saw time in barrique. It is purple-colored with a slightly brooding nose of black currant and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with some elegance excellent depth and savory flavors. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now. It will be at its best from 2010 to 2018.` 90 points Wine Advocate

Dry and dusty blackberry, or is that blackcurant? and a light chocolate/vanilla aroma. Slightly jammy flavour makes its way through the dust with well rounded tannins giving a relatively smooth mouth feel. Finishes nicely, if a little quickly. $19.99 Cdn (and selected as best chilean cab sav sold in bc liquor stores in the $18-22 range by James Cluer).

Mouth-filling, tannic, and chewy, just like a good cab should be.

This wine is a great everyday wine if you like cabs. It is well rounded with great cab floavors and a nice finish. The alcohol isn't overwhelming like so many 15 dollar cabs and the fruit is soft and crisp.

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

Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas 2006 - Cousino Macul: Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas 2006 - Rotwein von Cousino Macul  Im Glas funkelt dieser Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas in einem satten Granatrot. In der Nase spüren wir ein vielschichtiges Bouquet, wie einen intensiven Duft nach Brombeeren, Anklänge von Kaffee, Rauch und Speck. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich dann mit einem gut strukturierten, mittelgewichtiger Körper mit intensiven, fast expressiven Aromen von Brombeeren und Cassis, sowie Gewürzen wie Rosmarin und Eichen- und Zedernnoten. Er weist ein kerniges Tanningerüst, eine gut integrierte und kaum zu spürende Säure auf. Dieser traditionelle und rustikale Wein passt zu Schmorgerichten mit feinen Soßen, Wildpasteten, Lammspießen und kräftigem Bergkäse.Weingut: Cousino MaculLand: ChileRegion: Maipo ValleyRebsorte: 100% Cabernet SauvignonAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 5,5 g/lRestsüße: trockenInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Auszeichnungen des Cousino Macul Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas 2006:88 Punkte - Wine Advocate Rotwein > Chile > Maipo Valley
