T.H. stands for Terroir Hunter. Grapes were sourced from a selected vineyard in Pirque in the Alto Maipo area. This is located at the foot of the andes Mountain range on the Eastern edge of the Maipo Valley, which is world famous for its perfect climate for red wines.
"As with the other wines, it was interesting to taste the 2016 T.H. Cabernet Sauvignon Alto Maipo next to another Cabernet bottling from a different region. This was produced with grapes from the classical zone for the grape, Pirque in Alto Maipo, which is a cooler location within the valley. 2016 was a wet El Niño year, and the end of the season was warm—even warmer than 2015. After a cold soak, the destemmed and crushed grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in French oak barrels (28% new) for 14 months. Selected from a 6.85-hectare plot, most of the grapes were picked before the rain, and the wine has good freshness and the Maipo character in an elegant, vertical style. The ripeness is more contained, a clear improvement over previous vintages of this bottling. 39,865 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2017."
"Dark, brooding nose of coffee bean and milk chocolate. Voluptuous, spicy blackcurrant flavours lengthened by fine-grained tannins. Long and well-judged."
"This wine's roasted, savory bouquet contains blackberry, cinnamon, olive, earth and oak aromas. It hails from Pirque, one of Chile's hotbeds for traditional Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is chewy and deep, with spicy black-fruit flavors and oak-derived notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark fruit and herbal touches flood the finish. Drink now–2023."
"Beautiful pure dark fruit has cassis cascading across the palate, combing well with balanced vanilla oak character."
"There's a nice edge to this red, which features dried green herb notes and dried berry flavors. The taut finish offers flavors of crushed stone and spice. Drink now through 2021. 3,261 cases made."
"Pirque is one of the highest spots in the Andean Maipo and the best wines grown there tend to be elegant, with delicate herbal notes to their fruit. This one is firm and austere, but give it time, and oxygen helps to draw out its sense of place. Minty aromas and earth tones give way to complex notes of black pepper, herbs and cassis. Great to decant now for game, this will gain in grace with some years in the bottle."
"Intense spearmint and cassis nose. Classic and cool, elegant fruit with rounded tannins and a chunky fruit laden mid palate."
Gold Medal "Intense black cassis fruit with lovely rich depth to the palate. Delicious savoury notes of black olive and a hint of spice with a long plush finish"
"Loads of blackberry, black currant and dried flowers on the nose. Full body, velvety tannins, very pretty blueberry fruit and a mineral aftertaste. Drink now."
Best Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon of 2016
"Composed, lightly woody aromas of berry fruits, spice and herbs are harmonious and earthy. This spunky Cabernet reflects a cool vintage via pepper, tomato, herb and berry flavors. A layered yet snappy finish shows good length and complexity."
