Food Pairings for Borobo Apalta Casablanca Requinoa Valley
Dark purple color, right up to the rim. Blackberry, plum, white pepper, and vanilla on the nose. Similar notes on the palate with plum, licorice, smoke, and cracked pepper flavors. Soft tannins and medium acidity. Medium body but medium+ intensity. High, but well integrated alcohol (15%).

This is a really solid bottle for $15. Lots of cherry, blackberry notes, and spice. Good balance and a creamy mouth feel. I am excited to find a bottle this good at this price point.
Lovely dusty nose of dark berry fruit with hints of nutmeg, wet stone, tar and black pepper. Big minerality among the cassis, currant and black/blueberry fruit. On the palate it's richly textured, full bodied and lush. Marked minerality on the palate with roasty notes and dark berry fruit. Tight acid and tannin yet so this should get better with another couple of years in the bottle. Great structure and this would do well with food. Sweeter berry notes on the lengthy but dry finish. 91 pts.
No staying power in fridge. Over oaked.
External Reviews for Borobo Apalta Casablanca Requinoa Valley
COLOR: Intense inked dark red with purple hints NOSE: Exuberant and complex, with red and black fruit such as plums, black cherries combined with currant, berries, dry figs with black cocoa and a violet touch. Sweet spices like clover and vanilla give an elegant touch towards the finish. MOUTH: Well balanced, an elegant wine which has a bright attack followed by round, velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a rich long lasting finish.
Carmenere is an old Bordeaux variety that traveled to Chile two centuries ago, but it was not until the last 10 years that it finally stepped out into the spotlight. Intense, complex and full of aromas. White pepper and red fruit at the start, then prunes and black cherries with some hints of sweet spices. Juicy tannins with soft structure and balance. Fresh fruit flavors on the finish. The ideal companion for pasta, pork and grilled red meat.
Lively and fresh, with crushed raspberry and blueberry flavors, and a muscular, smoky finish.
Displays herb-tinged dark fruit aromas as well as flavors. Medium-bodied, it coats the palate with its blackberry dominated personality then tightens to a slightly rustic finish. Drink it over the next 3 years.
Lapostolle's basic Cab scores big in the fine '01 vintage. It features a deep nose of tire rubber, blackberry and rusticity. The palate is high-octane and deep, with plenty of ripe, tannic black fruit. And the finish is round and lengthy. It should age well for a couple of years.
Intense purple color. Expressive nose full of fresh red fruit along with tobacco, cedar and tea leaf towards the finish. Fresh attack on the palate and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled
Full and a bit rough at first, with some heat on the nose. Swirling settles it down, and what comes up are brawny cherry, cassis and chocolate flavors. Very sturdy and tannic, with energy. Significantly less lush and tasty than the benchmark 2003.
Der Geist von Frankreich im Boden von Chile! So jedenfalls drückt es der Name BOROBO aus, was für BOurgogne-RHOne-BOrdeaux steht. Tiefes Rubinrot mit purpurroten Reflexen. In der Nase ist er elegant, reichhaltig und komplex. Die Aromen erinnern stark an die einzigartigen, grossen Weine aus Frankreich. Eine seltene Balance, wo ein einzigartiger Mix von roten Früchten aus St-Emilion, Veilchennoten erinnernd an Weine aus Pomerol und Rhône, mit Aromen von Cassis und schwarzen Früchten aus dem Burgund in perfekter Harmonie miteinander spielen. Der Hintergrund ist robust mit komplexen Holznoten, Vanille und süsslicher Würze mit weisser Schokolade. Der Gaumen ist weich und rund durch feingeschliffene Tannine, die Frische verleiht ihm Eleganz, gefolgt von einem langen Finish.
