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.
Very juicy, with forward, tasty flavors of plum, blackberry, tobacco and roasted vanilla. There's a nice dash of grip on the finish. Drink now.
Deep ruby. Ripe aromas of blackcurrant, cherry, plum and tobacco, lifted by a subtle floral quality. Rich and ripe, with a rather supple texture and a sweet dark berry flavor dominating. I don't detect any tannins in this fruit bomb. Finishes with expansive dark fruit character and sweet persistence.
