Wine from Chile

Posted by klouse, Mar 31, 2010.

I just returned from the Dominican Republic and had a Cabernet from Chile named Marques De Sitches 2007.

I cant seem to find it anywhere here in the US. Can anyone help with where to get this wine

thx,

paul

Forget it.  This is directed at a niche market as far as I can tell.  You can give it a couple more tries, I suppose, but with the choice available you will find appropriate substitutes, in my opinion.

thanks for the info. I suspect you are correct. I had the wine at the RIU resort hotel and perhaps it is made only for that or similar markets

If you like that style there are plenty of other alternatives from Chile in the marketplace, many of them likely better, anyway....

thanks dmcker .... could you suggest a few,

I'm really anovice at this wine thing but that Marques De Sitches we had was much to our liking. the cabernet was very smooth and light with very little after bite

thanks

A couple of questions first. Where are you located. And what other cabs have you liked, or not liked, in the past?

And can you describe anything else you remember about the MdS cab you had? I certainly haven't had it, and as per the most likely explanation provided by Zufrieden, since this is a specialty bottling not many people have. Google isn't much help, the only results of interest are this thread itself, and a few pages letter several references to 'switches' and whips and Marquis de Sade. ;-(

But if you can answer these questions I'm sure we can come up with some reasonable alternatives....

We are located in southern New Jersey,USA. I cant say that I have liked any other cabs that i've tried. They usually have a slightly bitter after taste that I call "bite" not mellow and smooth. All I can say about the MdS we had that it was very smooth, no sign of any bitterness after the swallow and it was very mild and slightly fruity. someone suggested trying another cab from the same winery but i don't even know what Chilean winery produced it  thanks for you help because I really am a "wine dunce" . this may seem odd but the only thing I could possibly compare it to is a good quality smooth chianti but not quite as dry .... perhaps a bit sweater

This wine is considered very bad quality. I live in the DR and this is the cheapest wine available. I wouldn't even call it wine.
