  6. 2011 Chilean Curico MalbecI've always been partial to this Chilean Malbec and prefer it over the Argentinian Malbecs we have made in the past. Always deep in color, plenty of fruit and approachable when young. If I could only make one type of spring wine this would be the hands down winner. I almost didn't get some this year but luck (and a good friend) prevailed.Preliminary Plan: 72 lbs Crush –100% Whole Berries Additives:Color Pro 2 - 4 mL Opti-Red or Booster Rouge 6 - 8 g Tannins 5 g [*]Yeast: Lalvin ICV-D21[*]Oak: 50 Cubes Hungarian Medium Toast Thoughts:Some of this will end up in blends but at least half I intend to bottle on its own.

  10. 2011 Chilean Colchagua Cabernet SauvignonI've always found the Chilean Cabernet (from Curico and Colchagua) a bit too restrained for my tastes. I prefer my Cabs a bit more lush. This year, instead of a standard Bordeaux style yeast, I am going with Enoferm RP15. I've had good results with Petite Sirah and RP15 in producing a wine with lush fruit. We shall see how it works with this Cabernet.Preliminary Plan: 72 lbs Crush –100% Whole Berries Additives:Color Pro 2 - 4 mL Opti-Red or Booster Rouge 6 - 8 g Tannins 5 g [*]Yeast: Enoferm RP15[*]Oak: 70 Cubes American Medium Toast Thoughts:Like most years, the bulk of this will will probably end up in blends however, if outstanding alone, I could change my mind.
