"The Cabernet for the 2011 Baron D'A Grand Vin is sourced exclusively from Alto Cachapoal, so the wine is very different from the 2010, which also contained Cabernet grapes for Maipo; it shows more classical and pure. It is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo, with 15% Malbec from Bio-Bio (San Rosendo) and a 5% pinch of Carmenere for Cauquenes (Maule). Vinification and élevage are the same but the difference in weather during the growing season (2011 was cooler), the different source and different grapes makes this much more classical in aromas, texture and flavors. It's more complex, more layered and fresher. It's an elegant blend with very fine tannins, great length, and chalky minerality that provide for that length and a special freshness in the finish. 3,600 bottles produced."
