Colchagua Valley, Chile
Siegel Cabernet Sauvignon Uber Cuvee is 85% Cabernet and 15% Syrah, aged for 8 weeks in medium toasted barrels, 100% French oak. It is dark red in color and has a perfumed nose with hints of vanilla. This fruity, dark cherry-flavored wine exhibits round rich flavors that over-deliver for the price!
Vinous on the 2015:
"Inky ruby. Deep-pitched aromas of dark berries, cracked pepper and tobacco slowly take on a hint of toasty oak. Fleshy and open-knit, showing good heft to the medicinal cherry and cassis flavors. Becomes spicier and more lively with air and finishes smoky and long, delivering gentle tannic grip and an echo of sweet dark berries." - Josh Raynolds

Wine Advocate on the 2014:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Uber Cuvée is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah, and a selection of Fran Kysela working with winemaker Alberto Siegel. This wine offers up a deep ruby/purple color, loads of blackcurrant fruit with licorice, roasted pepper, a touch of baking spices and a soft, round, juicy finish. It should drink well for 3-4 years."
