Ramirana, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva

 

Tasting Notes: In 1554, Spanish missionaries and conquistadores brought wine to Chile, planting vines in Maipo Valley. Those same Spaniards brought the spectacular Creole horse, relative of the Arabian, known for incomparable stamina. Ramirana is named in honor of these majestic animals, which run freely at the vineyard; and made in a style that reflects power, restraint, and beauty. Winemaker Sergio Hormazabal blends old and young vines for this Cabernet Reserva; 70% is aged in French oak for 10 months. With a muscular mouthfeel, and aromas of red fruits and spice, powdered chocolate and dried mint.
