2010 Cousiņo-Macul - Finis Terrae Maipo Valley (750)
2010 Cousiņo-Macul - Finis Terrae Maipo Valley (750ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: Chile - Central Valley - Maipo Valley
Red Wine 

Finis Terrae was conceived, designed, and built by Chile's masterful Cousiño-Macul winery to go head-to-head with the First Growths of Bordeaux and Napa Valley. With the just-released 2010 Finis Terrae, a breakthrough vintage for this wine, it has become a remarkably good impersonator of La Mission Haut-Brion, at 1/20th the price. It is made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Syrah (a clever addition to the traditional Bordeaux cépage, which has given Finis Terrae the last bit of LMHB-like richness it needed to complete the picture). The wine is aged for 15 months in a combination of Seguin Moreau, Taransaud, Demptos and Saury French oak (55% new). What jumps out first and foremost is the cedary, plummy fruit, accented by very Graves-like notes of scorched earth, damp forest floor, and minerality. Supple and amazingly sophisticated for the price, the 2010 Finis Terrae, while immensely enjoyable now, has the structure and balance to age gracefully for an additional 7 to 10 years. Decant one-half hour before serving.
