2012 Cousino-Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon
A new arrival from Chile to our shores, Cousino-Macul was established in 1856 and is the only winery amongst those established in the nineteenth century that remains in the hands of the original founding family. Their Antiguas Reservas range of wines deliver excellent varietal expression and are fantastic value.
A perfectly ripened Cabernet delivering loads of flavour
Aged in French oak for 12 months then given a further 6 months bottle age before being released. Opaque black crimson colour with a dark crimson red hue. Aromas of blackcurrant and black cherries infused with tobacco arise from the glass followed by some black olive and spicy cedar. Medium to full bodied the palate dishes out superb perfectly ripened blackcurrant flavours alongside some ripe dark cherries and mulberries with underlying cedary tobacco characters and spice. Finishes dry with a solidly built very fine grained tannin structure. Very savoury with a long aftertaste of ripe blackcurrants, mulberries, cedary tobacco characters and spice.
Cellar 4-5 years.
