Intense violet color. Aromas of cassis are complemented with notes of mature red fruit and chocolate. Elegant, balanced and richly structured with a long finish.

"Dark olives, cassis and some fresh herbs. A medium-to full-bodied red with fresh, bright acidity and tight tannins. Sustainable. Drink now."

"Ripe and full-flavoured, but showing the freshness and balance that are features of the Los Lingues terroir, this is a well-made varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from Fabiola Calderon. Showing some stony reduction, it's a bright, minty, blackcurrant fruity number with deftly applied oak. 2023-28"

"Black fruit, dried herbs, chocolate, orange zest and spices on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins. Structured and savory with some bitter tea leaves on the finish. Drink now."

"The 2017 vintage of the Los Lingues Cabernet Sauvignon is in every respect the equal of the 2016, which we rated highly. It begins with smoky, dark fruited nose and proceeds to a round, silky, well balanced palate of mineral-inflected, herbal-tinged dark cassis. There’s a sense of refinement and balance to this wine."

"A classic Chilean Cabernet from Los Lingues, aged in an adroitly judged combination of French and American oak, this is smooth and aromatic, all mint, blackcurrant pastille and scented oak, with a fresh, tapering finish. 2020-26"

"The Los Lingues Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious, youthful wine with lots of promise, and it offers exceptional value for the price. Showing cedar-tinged dark red fruit on the nose, it has an expressive, silky palate of generous black currant and blackberry fruit and round but fairly dry tannins. Aged in French and American oak for 8 months."

"Berry and plum aromas include notes of spicy oak, and overall, this Cabernet opens with good ripeness for an El Niño vintage. A fairly tight body is more racy than dense, while spicy berry and plum flavors are a bit chocolaty prior to a finish with prune notes. Drink through 2024.- MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

"Plenty of toasty oak on the nose. Hints of coconut. Much more fruit on the palate and the moderately dry tannins are well integrated. Good depth and length. Drink now."
