deep and concentrated fruit, lovely complexity yet lively acidity and delicate characteristics as well
when a wine is this tart it's supposed to taste like green apple. unfortunately this tastes like drinking a sour patch kid without all the sweetness.
This what Gary Vaynerchuk was talking about a few years ago when he said that Chilean Pinot was going to explode. This destroys California and Oregon Pinots at the same price point. Just a great versatile wine that I would even pair with a nice T-Bone.
Spicy and structured, but unfortunately not a very good nose. Hardly able to get the dark chocolate aftertaste which I had expected from a Carmenere.
Much better than I expected for $10 and a screw cap, fruity and yet earthy at the same time. Cherry cola, blackberry, tobacco, and oak nicely balance out. Rich, full of flavor, what a value for the price. Chile should be very proud of its wines these days.
I pretty much drank the whole bottle. The flavors aren't coming to mind at the moment, as it was a few hours ago and I've drank others since, but I do remember the wine was very smooth and subtle, with an interesting complexity. A lemon/lime component definitely. I liked it a lot, will definitely buy again. Edited on 8/4/09: Drinking this right now for the second time and it tastes 95% like a pink grapefruit and 5% granny smith apple juice. Great acidity, mouth-watering. Still like this wine. Maybe not as complex as I had initially remembered, but tasty.
A nice wine priced for a song! Opens easily with berries, slight smokieness, and burst of acidity. Velvety tannins are there but well integrated. Would give this 5 glasses if I considered price at all. Varietally correct as well, tastes like the component of a Bordeux blend that it is (at least used to be). If you like Cab Franc...give this grape a try.

From Colchagua Valley, an outstanding value in Merlot. Young and fruit-forward, yet smooth and food-friendly, this wine has it all. Pair with any meat dish, especially pork or turkey.

Spicy, earthy red with great fruit, hearty body and elegant richness. Don't let the obscure varietal throw you off - you will love this wine if you like Cabs, Syrahs or Merlots. Very easy to drink, with excellent food-pairing potential. Serve this with any steak, beef stew or grilled vegetable dish.
Fresh, pure and uncomplicated, with ripe mixed berry and plum fruit caressed by modest vanilla on the round, easy finish. Very tasty. Drink now.
