Vik Milla Cala

This wine from the Cachapoal Valley in Chile is a typical Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenère blend. Vik is a well known Norwegian in South America, best known for his luxury resorts in Uruguay. The 2012 version of this wine, from a young 2006 vineyard, made it to #22 on the top 100 of the 2018 Wine Spectator list. I tasted the 2013 Vik Milla Cala.

This wine offers a complex spectrum of red and black fruits. It starts fresh and elegant, then it gets a bit dense. This is a full-bodied, fruit focussed wine with a medium length finish. I am not sure the structure will hold, but it is pleasant to drink now with protein.

Score: 91/+
