Alta Delta Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Cabernet Sauvignon, often referred to as the "King of Red Wine Grapes," originally from Bordeaux, and now grown all over the world, has the privilege of being the world's most sought after-red wine. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes tend to favor warmer climates and are often an ideal wine for aging. Cabernet Sauvignon is a very bold and assertive wine that has potential to overwhelm light and delicate dishes.
Chilean wine production dates back more than 400 years. Spanish colonists, quick to recognize the terrain as ideal for viticulture, were the first to plant vines in the valleys that would come to define Chilean wine regions. They started with País, which would be the primary grape for Chilean wine for the next 300 years, until globetrotting Chileans, flush from the country’s agricultural and mining riches, brought home French vines to grow their favorite Bordeaux varieties.
