About This Wine

Some say drinking a good wine is like reading a map.

The difference is that instead of using your eyes, you’re using your mouth. As the vintner for Chile’s Gryphus brand likes to put it, “When you sip a wine from a vineyard where climate, varietal and soil are perfectly matched, the experience rings true.”

And so it is with the 2010 Gryphus Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted from grapes grown in the Rapel Valley, south of Santiago. “The flavors are honest and the wine speaks with authenticity about the particular style of parenting it received,” the vintner continues. “In other words, it’s anchored to home.”

And what a home the Rapel Valley provides. The region stretches from Chile’s Pacific Coast to the foothills of the Andes, some 60 miles inland. Red varieties reign supreme, and the Gryphus Cabernet Sauvignon serves as a delicious example of a variety that is perfectly matched to its appellation.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
