A big bowl of fruit. Excellent wine but it does need 2 hours to come out of it's shell Read more

Very nicely done. Nice aromas, mouthfeel and finish. Read more

Big and chewy just the way we like them. Great flavors out of this wine. Do not serve to the Merlot fans in your group and save it for yourself. Read more

Tasted this virtually blind, knowing nothing about it and loved it. It's a very well crafted wine with both weight and delicacy. Ready to drink.

This is an excellent representation of the level of wines coning from Chile. Once this wine opens up tobacco and cherry dominate. It will benefit from some decanting.

Glass-staining ruby. Sexy aromas of cherry-vanilla, potpourri and Cuban tobacco, with smoke and licorice accents in the background. Fleshy, sweet and expansive, showing intense red and dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Supple tannins add shape and grip to the finish, which leaves a sweet cherry note behind. This suave wine drinks very well now, especially with some decanter time; it should age nicely over the coming decade.

The 2007 Sideral is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah. Purple-colored, the nose is reticent but displays notes of cedar, pepper, sage, cinnamon, blackcurrants, and blueberry. On the palate, it has a Bordeaux-like elegance, vibrant, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 6andndash;8 years.

Toasty sage and herb notes lead the way. This features a core of currant and black cherry fruit backed by a lightly firm edge on the finish. Not generous, but focused. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenandegrave;re, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Drink now.

Sattes Purpur, zum Rand hin aufhellend. Vielfältiges Bouquet von Brombeeren und etwas Cassis, mineralische Noten, feine Würze. Enorm kraftvolle und von einer besonderen Eleganz geprägter Gaumen, schwarze Frucht, auch etwas Tabak und Lakritze, gut strukturiert, von einer verführerischen Fruchtsüsse erfüllter langer Abgang.

<p> <p>From Chile's Rapel valley this full bodied red is made from a blend consisting 84% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Syrah and 2% Sangiovese.&nbsp;This is a dark, dense, almost impenetrable wine by color.</p> </p>
