Winemaker's comment

120 Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense purplish red in color, fruity aromas on the nose reminiscent of ripe red fruits such as cherry with hints of vanilla and tobacco coming from contact with oak. In the palate we find sweet and elegant tannins leaving a juicy and fresh finish.

Climate & Soil

Chile’s central zone has Mediterranean climate with a broad oscillation between daytime and nighttime temperatures, an average humidity of 55-60%, and maximum high temperatures above 30 °C (86 °F) in the summer.

Temperatures are lower near the Andes due to the cold air from the mountains, and the area closer to the Coastal Range has less daily temperature oscillation due to the maritime influence. Grapes from a selection of vineyards on silty soils with excellent drainage at the foot of the Andes Mountains are carefully combined with those from vineyards located in an area near the Coastal Mountains where the soils are heavier and have a combination of silt and clay. Vinification:

Vinification

The grapes were handpicked during the month of April. They were destemmed, crushed and cold macerated during 5 days for color extaction and fermented at 24°-28 °C (75°-82°F), 10% oak was used during fermentation to help set the color and stabilize the wines. Once the alcoholic fermentation was completed, 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 3 months to lend sweetness and increase complexity.

Winemaker's comment

120 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep and intense violet-red in color. Notes of red and black fruits predominate on the nose with the touch of spice that is typical in Cabernet, plus the aromas of vanilla, cloves, and tobacco that come from the oak. Sweet, elegant, and smooth tannins lend depth to the well-rounded palate and lead to a fresh, fruity, and juicy finish.
