2014 Alcance Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

Varietal:  -
Region:  Maule Valley, Chile
Winery:  Alcance

Background

When we came to Chile in the early 1990s most of the country’s wineries were congregated to the north in the warmer areas of the Central Valley. We chose a different direction. With our extensive winemaking history in the cooler regions of California, and a belief that “cusp” climates produce the most complex and balanced wines, we looked to the Maule Valley. The last two decades have taught us that Maule is a place of unlimited potential. With modern planting, farming and winemaking techniques, Maule can produce wines that deliver all the depth, character and complexity of many of the world’s finest. Alcance is built around estate vineyards planted over dozens of soil types in various climatic regions. We produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, VIGNO (old-vine Carignan) and Bravura, our flagship Bordeaux blend, all of which reflect our unique terroir and sense of place.

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Alcance Cabernet Sauvignon is a true reflection of the two appellations from which it hails: the freshness imparted from the Maule grapes harmonizes beautifully with the superb structure of the Maipo fruit. This is a deep, intense, complex wine with aromas of maraschino cherries and cassis. The bright, vivacious palate explodes with fruit over powerful yet refined tannins.

Reviews

94 points, Wine & Spirits:
"Part of Jackson Family Wines, based in Santa Rosa, California, Alcance is an estate in the Maule Valley and Jess Jackson's team was the first from outside Chile to explore the potential of that region post-Pinochet, in the early 1990's. JFW's lead winemaker, Randy Ullom, works with Andrés Sánchez of Gillmore Wines, producing this from 10-year-old vines on granitic soils. It's charming in its crunchy, refreshing red fruit that sails on with sweet spices, tightening up in a firm, more circumspect finish. Pour it with something meaty."
