It is an attractive ruby in color with a very red fruit nose and some very chocolate and bay leaf touches. This wine is pleasant, excellent body, juicy and ripe. Highly concentrated with strawberry & cherries fruit notes and marked spices. Persistent and outstandingly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a straightforward, clean and fruity Cabernet with aromas of ripe fruit, black plums and cherries and a medium-bodied palate with good balance and acidity. It’s not really exciting, but highly drinkable. Drink now.


Winemaker's Notes:

2012 was characterized by unusual weather conditions with 409 mm of rain, corresponding to barely 58% of the normal annual average. However, these conditions helped to control the natural vigour of the Carmenère vines. The technical team analysed the various operations likely to strengthen the grape variety’s true identity. In particular, leaf removal and management of water stress helped to achieve satisfactory ripeness and pleasingly fresh fruit. The harvest took place between 26 April and 10 May, Carmenère being a late-ripening variety.

Tasting Notes:

Beautiful purple crimson colour. The grape variety’s characteristics are reflected in the expression of fruit such as cherries, blackberries and plums. The nose offers notes of black pepper and bay, with hints of coffee, bitter chocolate, mint and nutmeg. On the palate, the attack is gentle, deep, balanced and seductive. This wine reveals the full potential of the Carmenère grape. Enjoy with cheese, pasta or meat.
