Smooth wine to drink on own, or with a hearty pasta dish. Easy Cabernet Sauvignon to drink.

An unusual cab with wild, unbalanced aromas and flavors. Crushed field weeds and thistles open an earthy, pungent nose that also houses subtle notes of dark fruit, including cassis and plum. Palate launches with a complex array of black fruits, including currant, plum and stewed prunes, framed by a sour, tangy acidity infused with notes of thistle, wild weeds, and burnt oak.

Had two bottles of this and was on a roll. Very good wine. Heavy dark fruits that sat on your palate nicely. Was big in the mouth but was not overbearing. Was a bit more tannic compared with its acidity. I will agree however with the previous reveiw that it matches any $30.00 cab out there.

smooth and great wine just on its own. Served with Green Lettuce Indian Chinese food probably not the best match with the food - likely better with a pasta dish.

Definitely one of my favorite table wines, let alone cabernets. Found at Sam's Club for only $8! May be my next case purchase!

Deep and rich, with hints of oak, fig, coffee, spice with a clean lasting finish. Will definately buy more of this; everyone who tasted this during a multi-bottle dinner thoroughly enjoyed this Chilian cab...

Inky ruby. A complex bouquet displays red- and blackcurrant, dark cherry, tobacco and incense. Fleshy, finely etched red and dark berry flavors stain the palate and are firmed by juicy acidity. Becomes sweeter with air, finishing with excellent clarity and lingering sweetness. This will reward patience.

Auge: leuchtendes Dunkelrot; Nase: Aromen nach reifen Kirschen, Johannisbeere, Pflaume, Note nach Vanille und Röstaromen nach amerikanischer Eiche; Gaumen: im Mund konzentriert, lebendig und weit. Elegant und lang anhaltend

Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, incense and fresh rose. Fleshy, gently sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors stain the palate and become firmer with air, gaining a zesty anise quality. Finishes with a strong echo of dark berries and persistent spiciness. I'd resist the temptation to open this for another few years.

Look no further for a fantastic value in a Chilean red. The fruit is jammy and the tannins are well integrated. Excellent red wine for every day (doctor's orders).
