Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Ideal for accompanying cheeses, red meats and pasta with hearty sauces.
Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - International Wine Cellar/ Deep ruby. Smoky aromas of dark cherry, beef jerky and cured tobacco. Redcurrant and cherry flavors display good concentration, with dusty tannins providing shape. Very cabernet, with good finishing grip and clarity.
Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is a spicy, forward wine with savory red and black fruit flavors, a supple texture, and an easy-to-understand personality. Drink this very good value over the next 2-3 years.
/ Dark red. Pungent redcurrant, cherry and underbrush on the nose, with slow-building tobacco and licorice adding complexity. This suave midweight offers ripe red fruit flavors, gentle tannins and good finishing sweetness. A great value, with the complexity of wines costing three times more.
/ Dark but focused with a solid core of black currant, loam, mint and tobacco flavors followed by smoke and grilled herb notes on the finish.
