Perez Cruz Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley|
The varietal 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Estate was produced with grapes from their vineyards in Huelquén, in the Maipo Andes region, and contains 4% Syrah, 3% Carmenère and 2% Petit Verdot. It fermented in stainless steel, followed by malolactic and one year aging in French and American oak barrels. It's fresh, harmonious and varietal, with nicely integrated oak. This is the biggest production of the winery, an easy-to-drink, approachable Cabernet with bright berry flavors and soft tannins. Super drinkable. 718,800 bottles produced. It was bottled in many small lots, and what I tasted was bottled in January 2018.
