Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas 2004

  • Area: Chile, Santiago
  • Grape: Cabernet Sauv.
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 85, Dilettante 86, Nwjr 86

Description: This wine has lovely aromas of toast, spice, burnt cherry, wood and black currants. The attack is intense, lightly sweet and fruit forward. Flavors of ripe dark fruits, spice box and just enough earth for a good grounding, are highlighted by enough acidity to make it interesting. The brief finish tastes of cherry pits. This wine is pleasant and nicely harmonized.

A full decant is not required here, but it should be allowed to breath for 10 to 15 minutes.

Price: $13
