Canto del Agua is one of the most heralded chateaus in Chile. They meticulously tend their 500-acre holdings in the Maule region, known to make the best Cabernet in the country. That's one reason we've featured their wines in the past. Another reason is that we wanted to get our hands on their special reserve bottling.

They turned us down. There was never enough, but we don't take no for an answer when we're scouring the countryside (literally) for the best wines we can feature. Well, finally, they relented and now we are thrilled to feature this very special selection that we have been after for years.

This area has been called the most perfect region in the world to grow grapes - especially Cabernet.

The vineyards are 3,000 feet above sea level, which means the air is incredibly clean, much cooler, and the sunshine is plentiful. There's also all the water you could want from the runoff of the Andes mountain range. Like I said, perfect!

We would expect nothing less from a perfect place than a perfect wine, and that's just what we got. The best part of the vineyards is used for this wine. Then only the best barrels of those vineyards go into this bottling. Why do you think we kept asking?

Suffice to say that here is everything Cabernet is and then some. Sublime aromas, lovely, extracted flavors, and a long, enticing finish.
