The backbone of Altazor is Cabernet Sauvignon, which lends the wine the typical characteristics and fine qualities of the Alto Maipo area. This wine is intense ruby in colour. Its elegant and complex nose is fruitier than previous vintages, thanks to the special conditions in 2012. Increased aromas of red and black fruit, such as blackberries, blackcurrants and morello cherries are apparent, together with subtle herbal notes. On the palate, it is well-balanced and the tannins are very present but elegant. The contributions from the other varieties are apparent. The Carmenere contributes its unmistakable notes of spice and red fruit. Finally, a small amount of Carignan contributes intense floral notes and, above all, delicious acidity and firm tannins, bringing freshness and character to the wine.
