Las Huertas Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Amazing value from the Chilean vineyards of the Lafite-Rothschild family. This season was marked by a slow ripening cycle that resulted in a harvest that was longer and later than usual. The temperatures abit cooler than usual, particularly in summer, allowed for a slow and steady ripening of the grapes. And the summer remaining dry well into the season, allowed us to wait until grapes had reached their full phenolic maturity before harvesting each plot separately.
Ruby red color, plum and cherry-scented nose with hints of caramel, chocolate, tobacco and black olives. Well-structured mouthfeel, good volume, lively tannins; a wine with a forward personality. Nice structure and excellent concentration
