Chile has become a source of terrific
values in Cabernet, like this blackberry-driven
version from William Cole.
What You Need To Know
Colorado entrepreneur Bill Cole sold
his software company and founded his namesake winery in
coastal Chile’s Casablanca Valley, an emerging zone for coolclimate
wines, especially whites. But to make a heat-loving red
like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cole looked south and inland to the
Colchagua Valley. In this region not far from Santiago, a
Mediterranean-esque climate gives the grapes the sunny
warmth they need to achieve perfect ripeness. This bottling
shows the soft, intense fruit typical of Chilean Cabernets.
Oak aging lends
tobacco notes to currant
and plum scents.
Full, rich blackberry and
the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Steaks, roasts, chops,
stews and braises of red
meat or game.
