This is an organic wine. It is from the Itata Valley which is Chile’s oldest viticultural region producing wine for over 450 years and Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are leading the new wave charge.
Aroma: Big pulses of blueberry with lesser notes of raspberry with Obidos Licor Ginja (sour cherry liqueur from Obidos in Portugal).
Palate: Moderate tannins in this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Blueberry rules both as fruit and also as blueberry pie! A grippy bit of milk chocolate coats the cheeks. The finish may not be long but it is super clean somewhat of a hallmark for any organic wine.
Personality: Hey man I am organic man! Clean living, healthy food and I meditate. I am far from a west coaster Lilliputian! I am a serious hipster.
Food match: While I go with beef, lamb and rich pasta sauces I can say avoid me with Parmesan cheese.
Cellarbility: Drinkable now. Hold until 2025.
RKS 2023 Wine Rating: 92/100.
