2017 El Barrio Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich and plush, this Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon displays flavors of black cherry and plum, deftly interwoven with savory nuances of smoke and dried peppers on the palate. Partial oak barrel aging adds complexity and structure, making this a wine tailor-made for grilled red meats.
