Named after the precious gemstone ‘Lapis Lazuli’, this wine is only made during the best vintage and has impressive character that only gets better with age.
Beautiful ruby red color. Elegant nose: black fruits like cassis, black cherry and plum. The palate shows good acidity and balance, ripe and soft tannins, floral and spicy notes with a long finish.
Pairs well with BBQ pork ribs, Asian stir-fry and roasted vegetables.
Surrounded by the suburbs of Santiago, the cabernet vines of Aquitania rise up the Andean foothills, the last vestiges of the historic vineyards at Macul. It’s a cool site, generating cabernet that’s rich in herbal notes and subtle red fruits. The tannins are light and elegant, spreading out with grace and freshness. A classic Maipo cabernet, filled with details of spices, herbs and gamey notes, this is ready to pour with roast veal. Or save it for a decade, as this will only gain in grace and charm.Wine & Spirits June 2018
Cellar Selection. This Maipo Cabernet is spicy and dry on the nose as opposed to bursting with ripeness. A dry tightly wound palate defines the word firm, while slightly rustic Old World flavors of mixed spices, dried red fruits and oak finish with structure. This is the type of Cab that will benefit from further aging. Drink through 2026.Wine Enthusiast March 2018
