91pts - Vinous
An elegant Andean Cabernet with purity of local Macul expression.
Nice ruby red color. Very elegant nose, combining fresh red fruit, cassis and spices. Nice structure and smooth on the palate, red fruit and a note of toasted oak. Soft and round tannins, very well balanced with a long aftertaste.
A great wine to pair with a hanger steak, roasted duck, or a juicy cheeseburger.

More about Aquitania
In the early 1990’s, two Bordeaux luminaries discoveredthe high caliber of Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile’s Alto Maipo region.They partnered with a native Chilean winemaker to make their dream a reality and set to work making one of the first small-production wineries in the region. Their cabs will be sure to remind you of Bordeaux, with Lazuli only being made during the best of vintages with the very best fruit.
