Cousino Macul Finis Terrae 2012

$ 25.25

 65% Cabernet Sauvignon & 35% Merlot

Tasting Notes

With a deep cherry color, the Finis Terrae showcases an intense nose of red fruit with subtle eucalyptus and spice. It also offers very elegant and discrete wood notes with clove. In the mouth it is very tasty and elegant, medium-bodied and succulent. Cherries stand out on the very long ending. Perfect for enjoying now, but can be cellared for nearly a decade. 

Food Pairing

Due to its high complexity, this wine has a wide range of dishes for pairing. Possessing a great body and structure it’s a great complement for any red meat. The subtlety of aromas and flavors would be a perfect partner for Italian pastries or a potato and pumpkin gnocchi gratin with Roquefort cheese sauce and parmesan.
