Founded in 2000 by Spanish entrepreneur Jose Manual Ortega Gil-Fournier, Bodegas y Vinedos O. Fournier is comprised of estate vineyards in Argentina’s Uco Valley, Chile’s Maule and San Antonio Valleys and Spain’s Ribera del Duero region. They produce a range of high quality wines from superior vineyard sites using a blend of traditional and modern technology. Chief Winemaker Jose Spisso oversees the winemaking for all three estates. O. Fournier produces four different levels of wine differentiated by their origins, aging regimens, styles and price points. The Urban range presents fresh, modern, fruit-driven wines aged in oak barrels for three months. The B Crux (Argentina), Centauri (Chile) and Spiga (Spain) wines are aged 12 months in new and first use barrels and 6-12 months in bottle. The Alfa Crux (Argentina), Alfa Centauri (Chile) and Alfa Spiga (Spain) wines are aged for approximately 18 months in new barrels and 12 months in bottle. The top tier wines, labeled simply as O. Fournier, are a special selection produced only in exceptional vintages and in very small quantities. O. Fournier selected the Lo Abarca, a sub-region of San Antonio Valley, to plant Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Pinot Noir. The 86 acre vineyard is currently planted to seven acres of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. O. Fournier sources additional Sauvignon Blanc from premium producers within Leyda Valley. In the Maule Valley, O. Fournier has long-term agreements with superior producers of the region to lease vineyards and purchase grapes. All of the vineyards range from 65-120 years old, making O. Fournier the only winery in the region producing wines exclusively from older vineyards. The 101 acre La Higuera Vineyard is planted on volcanic and alluvial soils to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carignan and Syrah with vines that are an average age of 80+ years old. Additional fruit is sourced from Linares and Loncomilla regions in the Maule Valley, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Carignan. Winemaker Claudia Apablaza is assisted by Jose Spisso, Head Winemaker for O. Fournier.

Tasting notes
A medium-bodied red with plum and cassis aromas, herbal notes and approachable tannins.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Dec 2012)
The 2011 Urban Maule Cabernet Sauvignon is also aged in French barrels for three months. It is showing some reduction on the nose, which gets in the way of the fruit, although rigorous coaxing gets rid of that and allows lively dark cherry and blueberry aromas to emerge. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. This is a dry, austere Cabernet although it is well crafted and has an intriguing broody appeal. Drink now-2015.

Technical notes
Cabernet Sauvignon from vines averaging 100 years of age was fermented in stainless steel for eight days, after which the wine was aged three months in new French oak. Bottled unfined and unflitered.
