Black fruit and spices are prominent in the nose, with emerging notes of red pepper and currant. Fresh, vibrant and packed with sweet tannins which give the wine its structure and body. The finish is long and persistent highlighted by hints of elegant toasted-oak flavors.
Yauquen Cabernet Sauvignon is excellent with game dishes topped in spicy sauces and wild mushrooms.
“Yauquen” is a word from the Mapuche language that means “to share a drink with a friend”. This is the entry-level, value line of wines produced by Ruca Malen.
