Echeverria Propuesta
Echeverria Propuesta 2014 Roberto Echeverría Jr has been the Chief Winemaker at Viña Echeverría since 2001. Inspired by his French heritage, Roberto’s signature style produces wines with a combination of Old World elegance and New World energy. More European viticultural techniques include timely harvesting to avoid over ripeness and therefore good balance and control of alcohol levels. Focus is on French varietals, barrels and yeasts, as well as longer fermentation and aging in barrels and diverse blending. This new Winemaker’s proposal combines juicy and flavorsome Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Syrah, Carmenere and Malbec and is aged 8 months in oak. On the nose, roasted, balsamic aromas suggest tomato and a pinch of herbal green in addition to berry and cassis notes. Good acidity creates a lively, dancing mouthfeel. Flavors of herbal plum and light cherry with a fresh finish.
