"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Estate is the only wine in this entry-level line. It's produced with grapes from their vineyards in the Maipo Andes region and contains 4% Carménère and 2% Cabernet Franc. After a five-day cold soak, it fermented in stainless steel vats followed by malolactic in the same vessels and one year aging in French and American oak barrels. They look for a fruit-driven wine here that is clean, fresh and balanced in the palate, showing the varietal character and the herbal character of the Maipo region. It's really open, expressive and aromatic, with bright red fruit and a balsamic, minty and pungent note that makes it very attractive and distinctively Maipo in the nose. The palate is silky and soft, polished and sleek. This is a wine with good freshness and less extraction as they started to pick early (in 2010 but mostly after 2012) and doing a soft vinification. A very good commercial Maipo Cabernet at a very attractive price. 900,000 bottles produced and bottled between October 2016 and September 2017."
