Frontera Cabernet

2014 Deep red in color. Dry, good body and structure with a lingering finish. This wine complements the classic Bordeaux grape Cabernet Sauvignon with just a touch of Chile's signature varietal Carmenere to offer richness and character. A textbook Cabernet with rich black-fruit fruit flavors encased in supple tannins. This elegant red wine complements red meats, grilled or barbequed, and aged cheeses.

Additional Information

It's time to rediscover classics from the doyen of Chilean wine. We have specially selected these wines to pay homage to Concha y Toro’s founders, Don Melchor and his wife Doña Emiliana Subercaseaux, who brought the original Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Semillon cuttings from Bordeaux. With these cuttings, they established the family’s vineyards and winery in Chile’s Central Valley in 1883. These visionaries saw the potential of this land where the sun shines about 300 days a year; gentle ocean breezes, sheltering Andes mountains, perfectly balanced soil and clean mountain rivers create an ideal microclimate for producing world-class wines.

Frontera is one of their best-selling wines, crafted in an easy-drinking style for everyday enjoyment. This wine is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere. The grapes are hand picked and mechanically harvested, then aged in 3 year old French and American oak barrels and 70% in stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 months.
