Morandé Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile 2012
"Despite the fact that this was a very hot year in Maipo, this shows a surprising, bright acidity surrounded by refreshing red-fruit flavours and spices. The tannins are strong enough for game."
"Gritty, tarry aromas of black olive and raspberry lead to a hard palate with choppy acidity. Sizzling plum and currant flavors come with a burnt note, while a long finish is bolstered by preserving acidity. This is a patented Chilean Cab: expect a heavy herbal character centered around olive and eucalyptus."
