P.K.N.T. Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The most famous, best traveled red grape variety, originally from Bordeaux, France, It has a distinctive, juicy, blackcurrant scent and flavor, which may be balanced on the palate by tough tannins. Traditionally, wines using this grape variety were made to keep, the maturing process taking many years, during which time the tannin content would soften and marry in. Chilean Cavernet Sauvignon tend to be made to mature soomer, accentuating the fruity character of the grape and restraining the tannins.

Dark red color. In the mose it has red cherries and plums with a touch of toasty oak. Hints of chocolate and berries. Round tannins, soft but well structured.

Made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Carmenere.

P.K.N.T. Carmenere 2013

Since nowhere else in the world is so much Carmenere grown, it may be regarded as a typical Chilean specialty. Until the arrival of Phylloxera in Bordeaux, Carmenere was a much-grown variety there, but after this scourge it was not replanted at all. As Phylloxera did not manifest itself in Chile, Carmenere continued to grow but it was rather lost sight of, often being planted and propagated in with Merlot. It is one of the red varieties easier to distinguish by flavor, as much when tasting the fruit as the wine. It has a flavor profile of red pepper, coffee, black pepper, blueberries and blackberries. It has a deep purple color with sweet tannins that fill the mouth.

A unique Chilean wine blend, that is almost black in color, with hints of exotic spices and a long velvety finish.

Made up of 90% Carmenere and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
