Viña Pérez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$16.99

This wine has been a favorite of us for years. A serious Cabernet at a very accessible price. Dark in the glass and aromas of dark berries. black pepper, leather, and chocolate. In the mouth, it regales you with serious dark fruit and dark chocolate riding over some beautiful tannins. It leaves the mouth filled with wonderful spiciness.

Winery:Viña Perez Cruz was founded by Mrs. Mariana Cruz-Costa and her 11 sons and daughters in memory of Mr. Pablo Perez-Zañartu, who in 1963 acquired the Liguai de Huelquén Estate, located approximately 28 miles southeast of Santiago, Chile. In 1994, red grape varieties were planted, and in 2001, a state-of-the-art winery was built. The first Viña Perez Cruz wines were made in 2002.Our wines faithfully reflect the unique features of Maipo Andes: a combination of alluvial parcels; stony, high permeability and drainage due to the presence of gravel in the subsoil. The first 30 to 60 cm of soil textures present from loam to sandy clay, with a slightly alkaline pH.
