Viña Calina Cabernet Sauvignon Valle del Maule Alcance 2008

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Bright red-violet hue, aromas of candied plums and baking spice; flavor notes of cherries, red plums and violets, almost sweet to a silky, lingering finish. Great value!

Viña Calina is situated atop a gentle slope overlooking the northern Maule Valley midway between the Andes and coastal mountains. The winery produces a collection of red Bordeaux varietals with its Calina Reserva, Alcance and Bravura labels. From a modern understanding of site. Calina Reserva wines are blends from the best of Chile's great wine regions. Alcance wines are estate-based wines reflecting the temperate climate and excellent soils of the El Maitén Vineyard. Bravura, produced only in banner vintages, is a Super-Chilean Cabernet blend. Inspired by its Chilean ancestry, Viña Calina specializes in Carménère, Chile's signature varietal and lost grape of Bordeaux. Viña Calina is defining its place in the Maule Valley with a state-of-the-art winery and newly acquired estate vineyards. The Maule Valley itself mirrors Chile's evolution of two worlds coming together. Old-world European heritage and new-world innovation are found intertwined in the countryside's two-hundred year-old vines bordering recent plantings in sites prized for their quality. Viña Calina is at the heart of this evolution with wines rooted in Chilean soil yet crafted using modern winemaking techniques. Read less

    A very inky, deep purple hue, with a nose of pepper and raisin. There is a bitter front, with a mid palette of plum, spice and oak. There is a dry finish with oak and spice.

    This deep purple, fruity wine is smooth and fun.

    'This wine is proof that good wine gets made in thevineyards. The color is dark and inky with deep purple hues.The aromas are intense with ripe berries, smoked bacon,sweet cotton candy, 'grandma's spice box' and hints ofvanilla. The tannins are well-integrated, providing theunderlying structure to support the wine's opulent fruit.The finish is medium-long and elegant with spice and hintsof oak.'
