Vinography Images: Young Cabernet

Young Cabernet
In the Casablanca valley, a lone tree is surrounded by young Cabernet Sauvignon vines, just emerging from their protective covers. The first plantings of Cabernet (or anything else for that matter) in Chile were traditionally on the flat, easy-to-farm land, but increasingly ambitious winemakers are pursuing hillside vineyards. That is, when they have access to the water to do so. At this point, the water rights to irrigate this vineyard probably cost more than the land itself. -- Alder Yarrow

Are you sure this is Cabernet Sauvignon in Casablanca? I thought the valley was too cool for this varietal. Do you know the name of the producer who is growing Cab in Casablanca?

Hi,
True, this cannot be Cabernet Sauvignon, it does not ripen in Casablanca. I need to check the info on the image and see what fruit this is. It may be pinot noir or even syrah. Apologies for the bad information and thanks for pointing it out. I will check by Monday
