Miguel Torres 2013 Cordillera de los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Special Reserve
Maipo Valley, Chile
World-famous Spanish winemakers, the Torres family has been making wine in Chile since 1979. As is the case at home, the family's grape growing and winemaking efforts in Chile are executed in an environmentally friendly, economically viable and socially responsible manner. They have been leaders in implementing the Chilean wine industry’s sustainability code, which is looking to govern all winemakers by 2025. They are also helping to promote the premium face of Chilean wine around the world. Case is point is this textbook model of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley — a full-bodied red that's muscular and quite savoury. Look for ripe dark fruit that gains complexity from herbal and spice notes.
