Viña Siegel, "Über Cuvée" Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Cabernet Sauvignon｜Colchagua Valley, Chile
The Colchagua Valley wine region of Chile is not the oldest, but is quickly becoming one of the most prominent in Chile. At its widest point, it extends some 70 miles inland and runs along the coast.
Founded in 1980, Viña Siegel is run by Alberto Siegel Jr. and specializes in Bordeaux varieties like this 100% Cabernet as well as other mediterranean grapes befitting the climate and geography here.
Smoky and silky, with a blue-black fruit core, this is a classic Chilean Cabernet. An herbal edge reminiscent of bay leaf and allspice finishes out the rich and surprisingly layered finish that, in our opinion, sincerely overdelivers for its modest price point!
