2016 Nguilleu Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Nguilleu Cabernet Sauvignon

Smoky and savory Chilean red with tart cherries and cranberries


Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains, Nguilleu wines are emblematic of the balance of tradition and innovation that characterizes the growing Chilean wine scene. 2016 Nguilleu Cabernet Sauvignon is a smoky and savory take on this beloved red wine varietal. Tart flavors of cherry, cranberry, and red currant ride along on silky tannins, mingling with a smoky overlay that starts on the nose and floats through to the finish. We suggest pairing this powerful red with spicy, rich foods, like Mexican pork with red sauce.
