Full & Smooth

Alto Cachapoal is a stunning Chilean micro-terroir within the Rapel Valley located in the foothills of the Andes. The climate is Mediterranean, the soils are alluvial, and the altitude is 2,000 feet. Wines from Alto Cachapoal have intense color and aromatic concentration, a bright acidity, and restrained tannins.

At Lagar de Codegua, they only produce a limited amount of wine from a single vineyard. They believe that making wine is an art, which is represented through the drawings on the labels by famous Chilean artist Bororo. The modern winery is gravity-fed, and is surrounded by 130 acres of estate vines.

Located at the base of the Andes Mountains, the unique combination of clear skies, cool nights and gravelly soils give this Cabernet its intense color, elegant tannins and expressive fruit character.  Fresh and delicate aromas of blueberries and blackcurrants, which are mixed with savory and spicy hints of pepper, grilled nuts and cloves. On the palate it is medium bodied with remarkably velvety tannins and a long and satisfying finish.

An ideal accompaniment to well seasoned red meats such as beef and lamb with sauces made with pepper or mushrooms. It should also be considered for game meats and hot stews such as veal ragout. As for cheeses gruyère, emmental or manchego are a perfect complement for this wine.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 10-14 business days to be delivered.

Aromas of currants, black tea and some thyme follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and intense fruit. A little austere now. Give it a year or two to soften and open up. Try after 2022.
