Calcu 2015 Cabernet Franc

Calcu is one of those rare wineries that always outperforms its price point by so much that every sip tends to stun you. And the Cabernet Franc may be the most stunning wine in the entire line.

This might be a result of Winemaker Rodrigo Romero’s belief that Cabernet Franc will someday be the signature grape of Chile.

This 100% Cabernet Franc comes from a single vineyard block on the Maquis Estate located between the Chimbarongo Creek and the Tinguiririca River, an ideal site for Cabernet Franc.

92 points! Crushed stones, slate, lavender and violets. Full body, grainy tannins, so much pretty blue fruit character, vibrant acidity and a subtle, mineral finish. Linear and sexy. Drink now.
