Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Alto, Chile, 2011

Red wine. Carmen Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon achieves ultimate varietal expression by focusing on the vital influences of soil and climate. Soil: The Quillayes vineyard is mixture of 20% clay and 80% sand, which provides the vines with the optimum conditions to make elegant wines with rich, ripe tannins. Climate: The Alto Maipo has warm days, and due to the high altitude of the region, cool nights. This fluctuation in temperature from day to night allows time wine to develops blackcurrant and spice flavors balanced by an elegant structure. Alto Maipo is without doubt the best Chilean terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy this wine with a good steak or prime rib. Wine of Chile. Alc. 14% by vol. Produced and bottled by Vina Carmen SA Camino Padre Hurtado N 0695, Buin, Chile. Product of Chile.
