Wine review: Cousino-Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Chile Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2011
  • Region Maipo Valley
  • Varietal Cabernet sauvignon
  • Food Pairing Grilled steak
  • Price $16

Polished as a cue ball, the 2011 Antiguas Reservas, from a reliable Chilean producer, is full-bodied elegance that goes down easy. Concentrated currant and raspberry mingle with sweet pipe tobacco and dark chocolate. Smooth but not wimpy-smooth. So nice for the price. A fine red “gravy” for grilled steak. Various prices in Alberta, $16.50 in Manitoba, $18.95 in Quebec.
