Cabernet Sauvignon – Muscat | 2015
Color: Deep red color, intense and brilliant.
The entire Maipo Valley enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate that is characterized by dry summers and winters with moderate rainfall. The 2015 season was almost entirely frost-free but precipitations and temperatures were higher than normal, thus reaching one of the highest heat summations in recent years. Due to the absence of rains, both the flowering process and the harvest occurred in excellent health conditions. The yields of healthy and good-quality fruit increased slightly, and the wines of this vintage, especially the traditional Maipo reds, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, have a remarkable varietal expression, great aromatic intensity and well-structured tannins.
Tasting notes: Of deep and bright cherry-red colour, the ruby hues of this wine reveal its youth. It shows floral notes on the nose, probably a contribution of its touch of Muscat. Its ample red fruits, mostly raspberries and cranberries, gain complexity by an added soft touch of mint and notes of well-integrated wood. It feels juicy on the palate, with a good density and long chewy tannins. It offers red and black fruits, such as raspberries and plums, a spicy touch of black and white pepper, and hits of hazelnuts. Of great volume, its long ending is enriched by a note of tobacco leaves.
