Estampa Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2015

Estampa Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2015 exceptional value - 91 pts Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes

June 2017 - Mostly Cabernet with 9% Petit Verdot. Bright hue, intense mulberry nose, with raspberry, plum, cedar, spicey, clove aromas also present. None of the overt eucalyptus character that can give away some Chilean Cabs in a blind tasting. In the mouth, the wine has bright red berry fruit with underlying blackberry, cedar, oak, vanilla and smoky flavors. The mouthfeel has a creamy edge from the oak treatment. Finish is lively, smooth and round, with a medium fuller mouthfeel. Overall this gave us a very good impression and at its modest price is a bargain.

91 pts Wine Spectator 5/31/17
Powerful, structured and full of rich dark fruit flavors, dominated by plum pudding, blackberry and roasted cherry. Hints of savory show midpalate, leading to a finish loaded with dark chocolate, cream and spice details. Drink now through 2021.



Winemaker Notes

Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is a red blend and 100% from the Colchagua Valley. This variety comes from 25 hectares of our own vineyards planted to a massal selection. The deep, well-drained soils have a clay texture, and the climate is warm and dry throughout the grape's ripening period. The Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is an intensely colored, fresh, and well-structured wine with firm tannins and pleasing persistence.
