2011 Domus Aurea Vina Quebrada de Macul Cabernet Sauvignon

Maipo Valley, Chile

94 WA '11 eta mid-January
Made with a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Very dense and deep dark ruby purple. The nose shows a lot of deepness and personality with vibrant balsamic and mineral characteristics. Fresh blackcurrants, plums and blackberries are enhanced by dried herbs. The noble barrel aging gives harmonious tones of precious woods, cigar box and soft spices. A subtle minty nose with licorice cherries rises in the background and promises nice times to come. The mouth offers impressive texture and structure. The frame of fine and tight tannins gives even more density to the yet natural richness of the flesh. It also adds a lot of depth, making this 2011 edition a quite vertical wine with great aromatic brightness. The still tannic finish already shows the entity to come though: even if patience will be necessary, sweet and spicy wild berries are here and of course, the typical Macul identity. Drink 2015 - 2028.


$48.59 as part of a mixed case.
