2013 VIK “MILLA CALA” PROPRIETARY RED CHILE

$50.00 $39.99

Vik’s Milla Cala 2012 Red Blend from Chile didn’t surprise us in the least when it went onto score 94 Points and rank #22 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list. This International Stunner is produced by one of the preeminent “architectural marvel” wineries in the Southern Hemisphere, and rises from an area that lies South of Santiago that was chosen after two years of intense scientific research and more than 4,000 soil samples, in a relentless search for the best terroir in Chile. The final blend checking in at nearly 40% Cabernet Sauvignon accented with Carmeñere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah and saturates your palate in a thick blanket of dark fruits, melted chocolate, pipe tobacco, black coffee and earthly spices.

From James Suckling, “This is a wine that shows the coolness of the vintage with currant, tobacco and coffee character on the nose and palate. Full body, with a linear line and firm skeleton. It has a freshness and savory finish. Much more precision compared to 2012.” 93 Points

VIK’s top wine retails for $140/btl and we found that the Milla Cala at $40/btl drinks like a wine that should be many times its price point. Highly recommend a case. 

Description

A harmonious wine with a persistent elegance. Milla Cala maintains a flawless equilibrium between aroma, body, and complexity… Created by legendary winemaker Patrick Valette, who is responsible for crafting some of the greatest wines in Chile and Bordeaux, paired with Norwegian entrepreneur Alexander Vik. With literally no expense spared on this project, the grapes were meticulously sorted in the most modern grape selection line in Chile before being transported by gravity into individual fermentation tanks.

VIK MILLA CALA 2013 PROPRIETARY RED, CHILE

Winery Notes: “The wine is ruby-red, with a profound brilliance. The 2013 harvest was particularly kind to us, with plenty of balance in temperature and an elongated maturation process bringing out the best qualities in our grapes. The elegant tannins and incredible smooth mouth feel are direct byproducts of this fantastic year. The wine has incredibly vibrant red fruit aromas (strawberry and raspberry) that harmonize perfectly with those of the barrel. Milla Cala is a subtle wine; one that balances its freshness with age. The attack is very fresh, silky-smooth with elegant round tannins and a long finish. It is friendly in the mouth; at the same time round and satisfying, easily approachable with beautiful structure, yet has a complexity waiting to be explored. It is a harmonious wine with a persistent elegance. A wine that demonstrates equilibrium between aroma, body, and complexity, it is the perfect companion to any meal with its graceful manner complimenting and pleasing all palates and keeping the conversation flowing.”
