The classic Macul Cabernet. Macul is a region in Chile's Maipo Valley, up in the foothills of the Andes. Cassis, red pepper and dried herbs. This is a wonderfulll elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. A nice change of pace from many of the Chilean Cabernet's which are far from elegant and go for largess over style.

Nose of smoke and jam. Palate of prunes and spicy notes with dark chocolate undertones. Lots of complexity with a long finish. Wife says it is reminiscent of a stinky cheese!?


Winemaker's Notes:

"Bruno Prats (Cos d'Estournel) and Paul Pontallier (Chateau Margaux) decided to look for high quality land in Chile to plant a new vineyard. Their third associate was their Chilean friend, agronomist and oenologist Felipe de Solminihac. In 1990, they acquired 45 acres in the 'Quebrada de Macul' - historically the heart of the Maipo Valley vineyard. Vina Aquitania was born. In January 2003, Ghislain de Montgolfier (CEO of Bollinger), became the fourth partner. Elegant Macul nose that combines fresh red fruit, cassis, dried herbs, and red pepper. The palate is complete with smooth tannins and loads of red fruit. It is a great wine to pair with a hangar steak, roasted duck, or a juicy cheeseburger." - Winery
