Deep, intense red.
Complex and intense aromas of dark fruit, such as blueberries, prunes, and blackberries that lend tremendous typicity and complemented by a touch of dark chocolate.
Mouth-filling and highly concentrated wine with firm, ripe tannins and persistent fruit on the finish.
Wine Advocate 90 points - Santa Ema’s 2008 Amplus Cabernet Sauvignon is a glass-coating opaque purple color with a striking nose of balsam wood, cinnamon, incense, rose petal, a hint of balsamic, and blackcurrant. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a round texture, spicy flavors, good grip, and layered fruit, it has enough stuffing to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now. (Dec 2010)
