Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon Xplorador 2010
Opaque red with blue tones. Varietal notes of black currant blend with hints of dark chocolate and soft vanilla. On the palate this wine is full-bodied and harmonic with flavors of blackberry and dry red plum leading to a persistent finish. Xplorador Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly matched with grilled or barbecued meats and mature cheeses.
Powerful wet carpet aroma. Fruity, smooth, with almost non-existent tannins.
A classic Chilean Cab expressing some vegetal aromas (asparagus, spiced green pepper) alongside some ripe plum notes . The ruby color is enticing while the palette exudes a stemmy character. Overall, a good value and versatile wine.
Pleasantly fragrant with violets and blueberries. More tart berry flavor on the palate with spicy finish. This would be a great value wine for big gatherings with cheese and snacks.
The intital attack was sharp on the tip of my toungue.. then it just fell off a cliff! It was an empty roller coaster ride. Even after some time... it opened up like a tiny blossom. Acid is medium... maybe it'd taste better with food.... not a bottle of enjoying solo. From the other reveiws... perhaps your pallete will have better luck! :)
