Wine EnthusiastBerry, olive, spice and herbal aromas are typical of Chilean Cabernet. Scratchy tannins and medium overall weight make for some roughness, while raspberry and red-plum flavors finish herbal and spicy.

Wine AdvocateQuite fruit-driven and clean, the 2012 Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon has a mixture of aromatic herbs, ripe berries and some oak-related aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with unnoticeable tannins, a soft texture but a slightly bittersweet finish that detracts from its drinkability. 240,000 bottles.
