Clos des Fous Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Beautiful dark ruby-red color with violet highlights. Outstanding fruit with a noseful of red berries, black cherry, black pepper, and hints of violets. Those elements come through on the palate with fresh black and red fruit revealing a full-bodied wine. Tannins are very silky and lush on the palate. The mid-palate is round and velvety with excellent acidity that enhances its liveliness and balance. Pairs well with wild game, seared fish and chocolate. Our "Grillos Cantores" vineyard is located in the Alto Cachapoal D.O.-the coldest part of Cachapoal. Because of the Andean glaciers and altitude, the vineyard has a long but cool season. The vineyard is in the piedmont of the Andes Mountains, providing very cold nights and large temperature changes from day to night. The soils are gravelly with a mix of granitic and volcanic rounded rocks mixed with limestones coming from the Andes, all contributing to the wine's minerality and soft tannins.
