Deep, intense color with cherry in color with a predominance of black fruit and sweet raspberry aromas on the nose. The elegant, big bodied palate has the variety’s structure and potency, although the tannins are smooth and round. Ends with a refreshing finish.

History of Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from sixteen-year-old vines from Chilensis’ Nilahue vineyard in the Colchagua Valley (81 miles south of Santiago). The valley sits between two spurs of the Andes Mountains, which form the basin’s natural boundaries and produce a corridor that runs from the mountains to the sea, a feature unique among the valleys of Central Chile. In the summer months (November–April), the average day/night temperature oscillation reaches 71ºF on average, which allows the grapes to ripen slowly, concentrating and preserving their flavors, aromas, and color. Yield was just over three tons per acre.
