La Ronciere ‘Nudo’ Rapel Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile
Review Date : 19-Apr-2012
Dark, deep, purple-hued red, youthful in appearance. This has a fresh and firm nose of blackcurrant Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with some cooler spectrum herbaceousness and stalk notes along with a little oak resin. Medium-full bodied, this is bright fruited with flavours of blackcurrants and fresh herbs, with resiny wood elements. The palate is well-structured with firm, grainy tannins forming a dry-textured line. The acidity is balanced and enhances the fruit sweetness on the finish, the wine carrying herb, leaf and minty undertones. This is a bright, fruity Cabernet Sauvignon in the cooler spectrum and dry tannin textures. Match with roasted red meats over the next 4-5+ years. Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from Colchagua, fermented to 13.5% alc. 15.5/20 Apr 2012 RRP $18.00
