2016 San Pedro Cabo Hornos Cabernet Sauvignon
91+ Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“Having tasted five older vintages of this wine, I could not help but to envisage the evolution of the 2014 Cabo de Hornos Cabernet Sauvignon. It is produced with the same fruit from volcanic and clay soils from the cooler Andes part of the Valle del Cachapoal that has been used since the 2006 vintage. 2014 was warmer and riper than 2013, but there was no heat peaks, so the ripening was also slow. It was also fermented in small batches according to the soils and aged in 60% new oak for 18 months. This is very balanced, extremely young and fruit-driven. This has the Cachapoal brightness and light, still somehow covered by the baby fat that needs to be rendered by time in bottle. I should taste 20 years of wines like this to understand where they are coming from and where they will go. Thanks to the San Pedro team, I have understood this wine forever. 11,157 bottles produced.” – Luis Guti?rrez (April 2017)
