Domus Aurea Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Domus Aurea Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

SKU 58814


The 2013 shows a deep and dark garnet with purple shades before offering a bright nose of balsamic menthol, candied strawberries, raspberries and black currants. Still young with also notes of herbs and red berries, soft spices are just rising beside subtle floral notes. The mouth is based on a juicy texture that moves around a deep and firm tannic column. Elegance is the key word about this vintage. Tannins still need more integration, but nowdays give a lot of relives to the bright body. The long finish is already expressive but will of course release more complexity and its full personality along the ten years to come.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Domus Aurea showed a penetrating nose with plenty of aromatic herbs, dried flowers, pollen and spices with a brightness of fruit that sets it apart from the rest of Cabernet from Maipo. The vineyard has some 4% Cabernet Franc intermixed in the old vineyard (planted in 1970) that is used for this wine. It's very balsamic and with a tasty palate with abundant, fine-grained tannins with the classical Cabernet texture. This is always balanced and elegant, quite traditional and expressing the place from which it comes. 31,900 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2015.

Wine SpectatorEffusively minty and fruity, with a plush texture and plenty of sanguine notes to the dried red fruit and spice flavors. Dried green herb accents fill the finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,600 cases made.
