Wine Review: This very dark purple colored Cab recently caught my attention. Especially, when I found out how much it costs. As a result I added it to my Practical Party Case list. It opens with an attractive ripe blackberry bouquet with a hint of black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry with notes of black pepper and anise. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are slightly prolonged. This food friendly Cab would pair well with an Angus bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This first vintage of Koyle Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby, with a nose showing a great amount of blackberry and blueberry. Bitter chocolate, cedar, tobacco, coffee and spice notes typical of the Maipo Valley are ever present in both the nose and palate. Tannins are well-formed, and come together beautifully, with a silky and balanced finish. The wine can be cellared for up to five years, and decanting up to 30 minutes before serving is recommended.
