Cassis and black currant play off oak, peppercorn and green bell pepper in this spicy wine that also exhibits soft tannins and a long intense, yet smooth finish. Pair with hearty stews, chili or a good NY strip steak with sauteed onions and wild mushrooms. The spice in this wine need a beef dish to expose its fruit flavors.

Dark ruby red in color. Complex aroma with a hint of cherry. I completely love the taste of this wine; with sweet taste and very light tannins. I wouldn't call it fruity, but the sweetness in the after taste is amazing. Love it.

Stunning wine best enjoyed on it's own as you don't want food to interfere in any way.

Robust and mature, smooth depth, with obvious spicy shiraz overtones. Delicious.

Maipo Alto Valley, ChilePerez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is a beautiful Chilean red wine gem from Vina Perez Cruz. Perez Cruz is a family-owned winery specializing in red wines, all produced and bottled at Fundo Liguai de Huelquen. The beautiful state-of-the-art winery sits among 250 hectares of vineyards surrounded by the foothills of the Andes in the Maipo Valley, 45km southeast of Santiago. Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Syrah and 2% Carmenere. It is full-bodied with notes of ripe red fruits, black pepper, vanilla, dried fruit and a classic touch of herbal aromas including tarragon and laurel. On the palate it is creamy and concentrated with silky, rounded tannins. This wine is beautifully balanced to drink now and over the next 6-8 years. The finish is long and smooth.Enjoy Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva with grilled flank steak, BBQ ribs, empanadas and sharp cheeses.

Situated in the Alto-Maipo region, the Perez Cruz families beautiful estate has hit the headlines for all the right reasons. From the first vintage in 2002 their wines have amassed an impressive array of awards and gold medals, the latest being Gold in the IWC 2006. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon Region : Chile / Alto Maipo Maker : German Lyon Notes : Rich intense blackcurrants and eucalyptus on the nose, delicious jammy fruits on the palate with a long intense smooth finish. Absolutely loaded with sweet fruit flavours. This must be the best value for money Cab in the country! Serve : Ratatouille, beef stroganoff, roast veal loin, rich hearty dishes ABV : 14.5% Suitable for Vegetarians

Robert Parker 90 Points This is a state of the art operation situated in the premium red grape growing area of Alto Maipo and this is Vina Perez Cruz flagship wine. No expense is spared! The yields are a mind boggling 18 hectolitres per hectare (1st Growth Claret is probably nearer 30 to 40!) This outstanding red wine was naturally fined and stabilised in barrels followed by light filtration. Grapes : 40% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carmenere Region : Chile / Alto Maipo Taste : Typical Alto Maipo nose of Blackcurrants,eucalyptus,and overripe mango. Massive but restrained palate .The flavour goes on forever. Serve : Ideal with Sunday Roasts and smooth red meats ABV : 14.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
