Cousiño-Macul Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Member Review by Chris Carpita:

Deep cherry oak on the nose, the mouth begins with smoked wood and ash followed by stone fruit and currant. The warmth lingers, and a small to moderate residual sugar fills it out. This wine is very good for the price. The tannins are a bit under-ripe, I may try this one again.

Note: this was 24 hours after opening. Earthy and leathery nose, in the mouth the fruit (black cherry) was still decent. There was a lot of coffee and licorice notes, the coffee really dominated. Firm tannins, even after this length of time open. Finish was short, but like i said it had been open a while. Prob best to try this again in 6 months - it is just an 06.

Excellent quality from one of the most consistently good wineries of Chile. Full-bodied, dark-fruited, earthy with ripe tannins.

Wine Tasting NotesDark garnet in color, this Cabernet offers aromas and flavors highlighting red fruits and spices. Bing cherry, red currants, and boysenberry fruits predominate in the aroma and carry over into the flavors. Subtle mint, bay leaf and spices come through in the bright, refreshing finish.
