Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with a field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc planted in 1920 in Apalta. It's a classical expression from Colchagua, with some fennel notes and abundant but fine-grained tannins and good length. 85,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2016.
