2013 Calcu Cabernet Sauvignon
Colchagua Valley, Chile

Medium-bodied, ripe purple fruits, and some earthy qualities will give the tippler of this rather elegant Cab a satisfied grin. Chicken and barley stew was a terrific match.

Winemaker's Notes
"This rich, velvety wine is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere and 5% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from a block located at the foothills of the Andes at an altitude of 500 meters -- one of the highest in altitude and closest in proximity to the Andes in the Colchagua Valley. The soil is deep, alluvial and well drained because of the stoney and gravelly composition. The Carmenere and Petit Verdot come from the Maquis estate in the central part of Colchagua Valley. Twenty percent of the blend was aged for 9 months in third-use French oak barrels while the rest remains in stainless steel tanks."
James Suckling
"90 pts ... Aromas of spice and currants follow through to a full to medium body, solid core of fruit and a bright finish. Tension."
