A Chilean Cabernet with a French flair and 94 points from Wine Advocate
The Maipo Valley of Chile is home to some of the world’s great Cabernets.
Here is a great value play to help end the year in style, the 2014 Aquitania Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon. A joint venture involving three French winemakers and one Chilean oenologist, Viña Aquitania can trace it roots back to 1990 when 18 hectares of land was purchased in the foothills of the Chilean Andes, in the historical heart of the Maipo Valley, 'Quebrada de Macul'. Now with vines nearing 30 years in age Aquitania is making wines that give full expression of their unique Chilean terroir.
The Maipo Valley is famous for Cabernet and the Aquitania Lazuli Cabernet 2014 shows beautiful regional typicity, with its earth-toned, mint infused currant fruit. The numbers play out nicely here with an eye-catching review 94 pts Wine Advocate review and wallet friendly pricing that makes this a pretty compelling offer. We are offering this high scoring Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon for $21.99 a bottle and $19.79 when you purchase 6 or more bottles which brings extra saving into the equation. This would normally retail for around $30 a bottle so the savings are substantial. Stocks are limited so as always first come first served.
