2009 Aromo Estate Bottled Maule Valley, 13.5%, $10

Value Winner

A bit tight on the nose with nice mineral components playing off the cigar box oak and gentle cherry fruit that’s wrapped around a soft vegetal bass note. This enters the mouth with nice balance, offering sweet fruit that has a certain transparency and juicy, fruity acidity in a fun package. There are soft tannins adding to the supple nature of this wine and the fruit powers through the mid-palate in an obvious but never rude way, then fades rather quickly leaving one with a quite earthy and lightly toasted oak finale. I think the finish here might improve with some time, but this already is quite good. 89pts

    What ever happened to the little guys out there that are making great wines? Alvaro Espinoza from GEO who is one of most respected and innovative winemakers in Chile, producing wines from the Maipo Valley "Isla de Maipo" (Chono) or Rapel Valley (Rayun). Great wines for the price!
