Cauquenina 2011

Tato Wineyard

D.O Itata Costa (Guarilihue)

  • Cauquenina Blend

Tasting Notes: Beautiful dark ruby-red color with violet highlights. Outstanding fruit, with a nose full of red berries, red currant, black cherry, blueberry. Spices like black pepper, tea leaves. Notes of graphite and hints of violets framed its great complexity. Those elements come through on the palate, with fresh black and red fruit, revealing a full-bodied wine. This wine opens generously, very silky and lush on the palate. In mid palate is round and velvety with very fine tannins and the excellent acidity enhance its liveliness and balance. Decanting is recommended.
