Clos des Fous, Grillos Cantores Cabernet Sauvignon, Alto Cachapoal 2011
What I love about this wine, even though it’s not the most complex or brilliantly articulated expression of Cabernet, is its nerve and pared-back beauty. From its leafy blackcurrant aromas to the firm yet juicy palate profile, this is a fresh and fine red, the product of honest winemaking and a cool mountainous terroir. 16.5pts/20 (88/100pts)
