Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Hussonet Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

Hussonet Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChileIt’s been years since we have seen this wine, and as you might expect, it has shed some of its rustic stylings and added more ripeness and more refined texture. On the nose, look for savoury bay leaf with sappy cassis and smoky, licorice notes. The attack opens up with menthol, resin, more cassis, and cedar, with pure red fruit poking through from underneath. As mentioned, the structure is so much better today. A solid offering and one perfect for a mid-week steak or beef taco.Tasted: 02 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.90 select private retailers Producer: Viña Haras de PirqueDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
