Cousino-Macul Finis Terrae Chile 2008
With a deep ruby-red color, Finis Terrae showcases an intense nose of red fruit with subtle eucalyptus and mint notes. It also offers very elegant and discrete wood notes, with some clove. In the mouth it is very tasty and elegant, medium-bodied and succulent. Cherries stand out on the very long ending. Perfect for enjoying now, but can be cellared for close to a decade. Particularly strong when paired with any red meat, especially beef wellington, pepper steak, or barbecued pork.
The wine is a pleasant, deep garnet color in the glass, and the nose is a fantastic blend of rich leather, mint, oak and ripe black fruit, black cherry, plum and blackberry. The taste is a lovely combination of spice and fruit on the outset, with some rich berry flavor and some pepper and warm spice. The spicy fruit transitions effortlessly to some earthy notes midpalate, with flavors of musty oak, grass and tart cherry. The tannins are very well structured, supporting a wonderfully tight, long, dry finish that seems to last until you're reaching for your next sip!

On the front, good juicy dark fruits without being jammy, some meatiness and pencil shavings; on the back end cassis, wet leaves and a bit of pepper. Medium bodied, moderate finish.
Love it...nice, smooth and velvety

External Reviews for Cousino-Macul Finis Terrae Chile
This red blend is deep, dark, and complex. Blackberries, violets, and cocoa abound in the bouquet, followed on the palate by cherries, rosemary, and black truffle. This has a lengthy, spicy finish with subtle tannins.
One of our best values in Cabernet Sauvignon. It has remarkable concentration and style, with blackberry and plum fruit and notes of violets and chocolate. A Chilean First Growth.
Eleganter Duft von Cassis, Rauch und Brombeeren, klare Frucht, zartsaftige Fülle, ausgewogene Art, geschliffene Tannine, dezent eingewobenes Holz, würzig, lang anhaltendes Finale.
Excellent quality from one of the most consistent wineries in Chile. This is a full-bodied, dark-fruited, earthy red wine with ripe tannins.
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 tangycherry 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.
