This is a charming wine. The name reminds me of gris-gris which is of phrase of West African origin and refers to the use of charms, usually several together stored in a cloth sack and worn around the neck or otherwise on the body. It also implies a gray sauvignon blanc which makes me think of a gritty wine but this is absolutely not that -- it's a fine wine (as in texture). The grape may be gray but the wine color is pale yellow. I''m out of battery and will have to come back later and finish this when I can recharge...

straw colored, drier than most reislings, but you still get a hint of the characteristic sweetness. I would say more pineapple than tangerine, with a touch of spice on the tongue.

This wine has grown on me with each return to the bottle. Opened up the 2006 we brought back from the vineyard. Oaky, but not too much. Some grapefruit, best when it's very cold. Great by itself after dinner. Semi-dry I think.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reserva remains one of the finest Cabernet values anywhere (the price has remained unchanged for years). Fragrant black currants and blackberry aromas promise complexity with several years of additional bottle age. Nicely structured on the palate, this elegant, Bordeaux-like Cabernet will evolve for a minimum of five years and drink well through 2025.

(Best Buy) For fans of Antiguas Reservas, this vintage hits the winersquo;s style with its earthy aromas, delicate structure and expansive fruit flavors. Perfect with oven-roasted rabbit.

A cabernet in a classic style with notes of mocha, dried cherries, coffee and a bit of menthol. The palate is fresh with the soft elegance of fine, firm tannins. For roast short ribs.

One of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon. It has remarkable concentration and style with blackberry and plum fruit characteristics with notes of violets and chocolate. A Chilean First Growth.

Opaque purple in colour, this Estate Cabernet offers aromatics of ripen blackberries, plum, herbs and cacao. Medium in body and light tannin, it captures the essence of Maipo Valley fruit. In the mouth, the flavours continue the blackberry-blueberry themes with hints of cassis and black olives. Its lingering finish echoes the black fruits and ends on a tangy cherry brightness. With time in the glass, this Cabernet unfolds beautifully, suggesting it can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for 2 to 5 years.

Cedar and fragrant black fruits, outstanding volume with elegance, 5-7 years aging potential.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dark 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.
