Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2006

Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml 2006   
Sku: 12121

Grapes for the wine have been produced at Los Vascos since the mid-eighteenth century. Today's vines are the product of the selective multiplication of plants originally brought from pre-phyloxera 19th Century from France. The vision of Domaines Baron de Rothschild (Lafite) to expand their estate took them to South America in 1988, becoming the first French viticultural investment in modern Chile. Los Vascos was chosen after careful review of existing vineyards, their soils and climates. Since then, a comprehensive modernization and investment program has been undertaken, oriented towards the production of fine wine using and adapting the viticultural experiences of Bordeaux and other areas where the group is present.

Wine maker notes
The color is intense ruby with fine brilliance and orange nuances. The nose explodes with fruit: black cherry and blackcurrant (Cabernet), strawberry (Malbec), raspberry (Syrah), plum light mint and black pepper (Carmenère). The oak doesn’t overpower the fruit contributes delicious aromas of tobacco, cinnamon, and crème brûlée (vanilla, caramel and chocolate). The rich hand creamy taste is fresh and very intense, well structured and finishes with a fruit intensity of raspberries and cherries accompanied by a touch of liquorice and walnut skin. It is very dynamic and still very young. This juicy and luscious wine is delicious to taste now but the tannins still need to mature for a while before it becomes ideal for drinking (2009).
