Wine Spectator, the world’s most prestigious and influential specialist magazine, included a selection of TOP Value Chilean wines in May’s edition. Gran Reserva Tarapacá Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 from the Maipo Valley placed #3 on this list.
Furthermore Kim Marcus, responsible for tasting Chilean wines for the US magazine, published an article in the same edition entitled “Chile’s Cabernet Sauvignon Heartland”. In the article, Sebastián Ruiz, Chief winemaker for Viña Tarapacá, explains that “the thing about Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo is the texture of the tannins. When the wines are young, the tannins are very present. But with time they become integrated. They become elegant and finely textured”.
In addition, the prestigious wine was awarded 91 points by the magazine in 2017, and was described as: “a consistent red, with graphite, prune and cherry tart notes. A touch of licorice and a little dark chocolate are present on the finish.”
Gran Reserva Tarapacá, wine with over 140 years of Chilean winemaking tradition, has consistently been applauded and recognized by experts, which reaffirms it as an excellent representative of Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile’s Maipo Valley, as well as one of the finest producers of the variety.
