Bodega Tapiz produces its wines with vineyards located at different altitudes ranging from 920 to 1,400 meters above sea level and embraced by the impressive Andes mountain range. This special geographical location due to its bio-climatic characteristics makes it a unique and different place to the rest of the wine world.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s foremost red wine-grape variety. Though widely cultivated throughout the world, it is most commonly associated with the red wines of Bordeaux, his home, where it is the key red variety in the Left Bank regions of the Médoc and Pessac-Léognan.
In the vineyard, the grapes are small, thick-skinned and decidedly blue-colored, with a high pip-to-pulp ratio. Its thick skin results in wines of profoundly deep color, and the pips add a high level of tannin.
It ripens late, which is advantageous in warmer climates like Bordeaux, France and California. In colder growing environments, Cabernet Sauvignon can easily fail to ripen properly.
They wines are tannic in youth, especially when aged in oak, and often require a few years to soften before they become enjoyable to drink. Typical flavors may include black fruits like blackcurrant or blackberry, as well as fragrant cigar box, tobacco and coffee.
Elsewhere, Cabernet Sauvignon is cultivated to a greater or lesser extent in virtually all wine-growing regions. High-quality wines are produced in Bolgheri, Italy and Australia, notably Margaret River and Coonawarra. There are considerable plantings and good quality in Chile, Argentina and South Africa.
