About the wine  

Errázuriz strives to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the winemaking process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines of elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion for wine that has made Errázuriz such an internationally respected producer of quality wines.

Maximiano Errazuriz founded Errazuriz in 1870 in the foothills of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Andes Mountains and the Western Hemisphere. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, he sent for the finest clones from France and transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick.

We’ll go out in a limb here and say that this is one of the world’s great values in quality Cabernet Sauvignon and, beyond that, a Cabernet that utterly reflects where it is grown. A perfect package of fresh and savory fruits and spices within a frame of juicy and supple tannins that offer both pleasure and structure.

Aging: 12 months in 25% new French oak barrels

Tasting notes: On the nose, aromas of red fruits, tobacco, cherries and a soft spicy note, along with dill and peppermint, are all framed by elegant notes of nuts, chocolate and cloves. The palate delivers sour cherry, raspberry and a fresh blueberry note, followed by chocolate and nutmeg hints, plus a soft reminiscent of roasted coffee bean. A long and juicy wine, with a refreshing acidity, marked by its freshness, tension, elegance all around the palate, and its fine-grained tannins, ending in a pleasant and long finish.

Reviews

Beautiful aromas of blueberries and currants with a hint of stone and concrete. Medium to full body, firm and lightly chew tannins with a dusty texture. Hints of chocolate and hazelnut nut. A cab that gives you pleasure and interest. ~92JS
