The excellent 2018 Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Cabernet Sauvignon has a very harmonious nose and the juiciness of the 2018 vintage. This comes from clay and soils in Marchigüe. The wine has some 13% alcohol and good freshness, quite different from the wines from Maipo. They used a combination of barriques and foudres for the élevage, and the result feels very good. 792,000 bottles produced.

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Marchigüe, Colchagua, is combined with 5% Malbec. Aged partially in casks (25% of the total) with the rest in concrete, it gains deeper cherry and ripe plum flavors and intensely expressive raspberry notes. The tannins are firm in texture and add energy and tension to the vibrancy of the fruit at the back of the mouth. A 650 thousand liter miracle.

A welcoming blend of mild oak and red fruit aromas is well executed on the nose and reflective of a great vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, this feels tight and slightly angular and edgy. Lightly oaked plum flavors are herbal in that patented Chilean way and aided by a hint of cinnamon, while this stays lively and balanced across the finish.
