La Junta Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Chile (750mL x 12)


Our Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is deep, bright ruby-red in color. The nose
offers an interesting and complex array of aromas that ranges from cherries to
plums and blueberries, along with soft notes of cassis and mint from the barre/
aging. The palate is flavorful and complex, with medium body and firm tannins
that add good structure and a subtle sweetness.


The grapes were handpicked in April and transported to the winery in plastic bins, where
they were gently crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks. Approximately 30% of
the fruit underwent a cold soak at 10C (50%) for five to seven days to enhance color
and improve the extraction Of the fruit flavors. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at
26—30C (79—86F) with three pump overs daily.

Post-fermentation maceration was also carried out, according to the development Of
each batch, and the wine was kept in contact with the lees for 10 to 20 days. Following
this maceration, 70% of the wine was aged for approximately six months in French oak
barrels to help round out the wine and smooth out the tannins. Once the final blend
was obtained, the wine was cold decanted and lightly filtered before bottling.
