Penalolen, Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile 2018
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot

Not to (almost) admit to judging various books by their covers, but this classically structured Cab from Chile’s Maipo provides a bit of a surprise. Its unconventional, perhaps trendy, label and predictable 14% alcohol might lead one to expect an ultra-modern, aggressively New World-ish outing (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), but this has a brighter, more classically Cab-ish edge that wouldn’t be out of place in riper, more contemporary Left Bank Bordeaux. Hailing from a well-drained, gravelly slope, this impressively structured creature includes small portions of Merlot and Cab Franc in an appropriate nod to Cabernet Sauvignon’s Bordelais traditions.
Serving Suggestion: London broil w/ cracked pink & black peppercorns w/ garlicky gai lan & roasted new potatoes. Empanadas w/ black beans, onion, black olives, & bell pepper.
