More about this wine from Maipo Valley, Chile
Over-the-top wines that are all oak and giant fruit bombs have fallen quite out of vogue over the last decade, which is a good thing, but it doesn't mean big-bodied and bold wines aren't absolutely delicious. It just means there wasn't a great selection of bigger wines on the market. They were mostly cheap knockoffs trying to appease the perceived American palate.

Enter this lush and voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile's Maipo Valley, which is Chile's most famous wine region. The climate in the Maipo Valley is warm and arid making it a prime spot for full-bodied red wines. The Aquitania vineyard began with two wine all-stars, Bruno Prats of Cos d'Estournel and Paul Pontallier of Chateau Margaux. This juice has a super pretty ruby red tint, and the robust fruits of plum, cherries, and blackberries cling to the side of your mouth like a party that never ever needs to end.

Go with Peruvian beef tenderloin, which is basically an Asian-influenced South American steak treat! Seriously, it is a flavor powerhouse of deliciousness!
