Curicó valley is one of Chile’s iconic regions 200km South of Santiago and Cab Sauv grown here is always a treat. A very intense dark colour with a fruity nose with spice and earth tones, typical of this varietal. Promising nose. Full bodied (almost sweet) with first impressions of good tannin-acid balance but tannins definitely discernible on the very long satisfying finish. - John Brownsdon
