91pts - James Suckling
Single-vineyard Cabernet from Los Lingues showing Andean-climate expression in the Colchagua Valley.
Intense nose of strawberries, cherries, blackberries and cassis, with spiced black pepper notes on the back. Fresh on the palate, with excellent acidity.
Pair it with grilled t-bone steaks or herb-marinated pork tenderloin.
