Santa Inés Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Maipo Valley
This is a wonderfully quaffable Chilean cab. Their distinctly Mediterranean climate means plenty of ripeness on the berries, giving plush and easy-drinking appeal to this great-value drop. Juicy blackcurrants, blueberries, black cherries and spice notes are framed by some softly-softly tannins making for an approachable red regardless of the food pairing.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

The Maipo Valley lies in the foothills of the Andes and the wines are as epic as the scenery. Seriously, google it. People much older and wiser than us once believed the Gods resided on mountain tops and, if the wine coming out of Maipo is anything to go by, it tastes like there's definitely been some divine intervention happening. Maipo is the birthplace of the Chilean wine industry, and with terms like the "Bordeaux of South America" being thrown around, it's hard not to get excited when a shipment makes it to the 'Fo.
