'Corazón' is Spanish for 'heart'; the Maipo Valley is Chile's red wine heartland; and little hearts hang from the tree on the label of this Gran Reserva Cabernet. How fitting, then, that our customers absolutely LOVE Tierra del Corazon. This latest iteration is brimming with ripe black and red berries, plus spicy oak and mellow tobacco leaf. If time allows, decant it, then sip with a special dinner (or a quick Thursday-night burger).
From its perfect geography to its perfect climate, everything about Chile’s vineyards is, well, perfect. And irritatingly so, if you make wine in Bordeaux or Napa. Part of the 'Central Valley' (along with the Maule, Rapel and Curico regions), the Maipo Valley is wine paradise. The Andes and fast-flowing Maipo River provide fresh, irrigating snowmelt. The Pacific provides cooling breezes. There’s plenty of sun above and fast-draining soil below. And the remote location keeps Maipo (and Chile) free from vineyard pests, so wineries here are organic by default.
