2010 Von Siebenthal "Parcela #7" Gran Reserva Aconcagua Valley

SKU #1116606 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Parcela 7 Gran Reserva is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in French and American oak for 18 months (second fill). It has a subtle red currant and blackberry-scented bouquet with touches of sous-bois and bell pepper that are very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and pure red berry fruit mixed with black pepper, sage and cured meats. It is very well-balanced and fresh, the finish supple and in tune with the oak. This is very fine and, again, should age nicely over several years. Drink now-2018. (NM)  (12/2012)

Wine Enthusiast

 Roasted, herbal aromas of stewed tomato, stalky plum and olive are typically Chilean. A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Petit Verdot, 16% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc, this is drawing on the palate but not overly severe in feel. Flavors of leafy red fruits, wild herbs and olive finish with an oaky covering. Drink through 2018.  (8/2014)

Complex wine with nice combination of dark fruit and savory, earthy / herbal nuances. Really great value given the depth of expression here. Quite a distinctive spiced meat character woven through the juicy plum and currant flavors.

I fell in love with the Von Siebenthal wines when we first began to carry them several years ago. I was thrilled then to see the 2010 Von Siebenthal "Parcela #7" Gran Reserva Aconcagua Valley back in stock (OK, I may have bullied Joe, our Chilean buyer, just a little bit). I don't drink a lot of Chilean wine, but I do drink a lot of Bordeaux, and this Bordeaux blend is really on point. A great wine and a great price. Welcome back!

What a steal at this price! Wonderful aromas of blackberry, bell pepper, and sun-dried tomato pull you into the glass. On the palate, the ripe red fruits and well-integrated tannins are balanced by fresh acidity. It made me want a steak!

This is a lot of wine for the price! The nose is punctuated by earthy berry notes with just a hint of pepper spice. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, ripe-fruited, with game undertones, and well structured with good tannin and acidity. This wine will age beautifully, though it is drinking quite well now!

As always, the Viña Von Siebenthal Parcela #7 is a delicious, elegantly textured, detailed Cab blend that brings much more to the table than most any $15 Bordeaux blend has a right to! Layered red fruited and savory aromatics lead to a very complete palate of red cherry fruits, solid secondary flavor development, and very supple, elegant tannins. This is a Bordeaux lover's, perhaps an old school California cab lover's red wine. Typicity, texture and balance are the keys here. Recommended.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine. Click for a list of bestselling items from Chile.
