2015 Vina VIK - La Piu Belle (92 pts) @vik _wine ℹ️ This wine is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Carmenere, and 14% Syrah from Millahue, in Cachapoal Valley, Chile. The soils are porous decomposed granite. This cuvée shows off Vik's interpretation of how Carmenere can play a significant role in a blend. The wine was aged for 23 months in French oak barrels, with ~60% being new. 👁 Deep ruby color. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe to stewed blackberry, black plum, boysenberry, dried leaves, white pepper, sweet tobacco, cedar, smoke, clove, cocoa powder, and lavender. 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium+ ripe tannins, medium+ alcohol (14.1%), and full body. A medium+ length finish of stewed black fruits, tobacco, and clove. 🔔 La Piu Belle is warm, plush, and inviting. This wine opened up with 60 minutes in the decanter and showed quite a range of flavors on the nose. The palate is ripe and round. The oak is well integrated on the palate. Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of this wine. However, Carmenere and Syrah steal the show. Love the combination of peppery spice, dried herbs, and ripe plums. I don't often comment on bottle art, but I find it quite charming and would make a great conversation starter at a party whenever we can have those again. 😉 💰~$90 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #millahue #chileanwine #chileanwines #cachapoal #vik #carmenere #cabernetsauvignon #syrah
