Casas del Bosque Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2015/16
Rich, yet easy to drink, typical blackcurrant flavours on the palate with hints of cedar wood. Great steak wine, yet it’s more than that – obvious in the way quality wines are, it’s just another example of what better sites in Chile, in this case the Rapel Valley, can produce.

Family owned winery Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari. The son of an Italian immigrant, he had always dreamed of having his own vineyard and chanced upon an area of the Casablanca valley, 100k due west of Santiago, with its pine forests, olive groves and small, white abandoned adobe houses. He chose to name the winery Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.” Winemaker Grant Phelps is evangelical about translating the character of the vineyard and grape in to the final wine, using longer than average skin contact to extract extra flavour from the grapes.
