Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic production of Los Vascos, and is the grape that made the estate famous. The vintages all share a mature and fruity quality, fresh aromas, and a supple and fleshy structure. This wine has a sparkling ruby red colour and a pleasantly fruity nose with aromas of black cherries, raspberries and plums, all with a hint of spice. This is a silky, flavourful wine, with a supple tannin structure. A great classic.
The viticultural year has been once again characterized by very dry climatic conditions. Only 409 mm of rainfall were registered. Technical sophistication ensured a very efficient irrigation of the vineyard and vines could express themselves at their best.
Due to a cold spring, yields were lower than usual, and comparable with 2010 levels. This resulted in less berries per bunch and lower diameter of grapes, which in turn translated in an excellent concentration that boosted the quality of grapes.
Although the harvest started a week later than in 2010, the entire process was conducted under optimal weather conditions, with healthy grapes and color intensity.
