About Our Ratings

The Seeker 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Central Valley, Chile
Grapes for this Seeker Cab were hand-picked and hand-selected in Chile’s Colchagua and Maipo Valleys. The 17-year-old vineyards are planted in clay and alluvial soils. A dry climate and proximity to the Andes produce wide temperature swings, maintaining the grapes’ natural balance while encouraging full flavor ripening. Grapes were destemmed before undergoing a cold maceration for 3 days to extract black fruit flavors and soften tannins. The must was fermented with a total of 15 days’ skin contact then the wine was aged in 15% new oak barrels, 50% American/50% French for 5 months. This is a Reserva-level Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of black cherry, blackberry and vanilla and loaded with flavors of ripe and juicy black fruit, combined with creamy tannins. Beautiful structure and texture framed with touches of chocolate and spice from the oak aging. The wine will continue to develop and improve for up to 5 years.

    Comments about The Seeker 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Central Valley, Chile:

    Nothing too complex here, but also none of that Chilean dirt that can overpower some of these value Chilean Cabs. Just a mouthful of jammy and juicy red fruit and spice with subtle note of earth and smoked cedar. Vibrant and easy enough to enjoy every night but enough backbone to pair with grilled meats as well.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
