Maquis Cabernet Franc 2017
The Maquis Cabernet Franc is grown in the Colchagua Valley. The wine is made from grapes grown on the Maquis estate, between the Chimbarongo Creek and the Tinguiririca River in central Colchagua Valley. These elements are ideal for producing Cabernet Franc grapes that are full and rich, yet display balance and elegance.

|The varietal 2017 Cabernet Franc include 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels for one year. This is ripe, with 14% alcohol, and it has mellow acidity. This is very elegant and harmonious, subtle and elegant, with varietal character and the restrained house style of moderate alcohol—even though it was a warmer year—and good balance. The tannins are fine, and the finish is clean, focused and long. Very good. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.|
