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.

It is straw colored and pours cleanly. The nose is pear, citrus, apple, white flowers and a bit of toast. Although aged in oak, this is not an oaky chardonnay. The flavor of apple,pear and grapefruit are nicely balanced. The finish reveals a whiff of oak, but wonderfully integrated and balanced. This balance is rare in a wine in this price range.

    Dry and dusty blackberry, or is that blackcurant? and a light chocolate/vanilla aroma. Slightly jammy flavour makes its way through the dust with well rounded tannins giving a relatively smooth mouth feel. Finishes nicely, if a little quickly. $19.99 Cdn (and selected as best chilean cab sav sold in bc liquor stores in the $18-22 range by James Cluer).

    Kind of a crowd pleaser. Pears, matchstick, kettle corn, and lemon aromas come out of this clear and bright pale straw colored wine. It enters the mouth with mild citrus and golden delicious apples surrounded by oak and weight down by butter. Luckily the well-balanced acids keep your interest well into the long finish. A great bargain Would I drink this regularly? Why not? But, in reality, it isn't my cup of Chard so I probably wouldn't.

    Mouth-filling, tannic, and chewy, just like a good cab should be.

    This wine is a great everyday wine if you like cabs. It is well rounded with great cab floavors and a nice finish. The alcohol isn't overwhelming like so many 15 dollar cabs and the fruit is soft and crisp.

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

    Blackberry, blueberry and a light toasted aroma, the taste has a blackberry basis assembled with laurel and tobacco leaves. The tannins provide an additional richness in the after taste mainly of ripe fruits, blended with a toasted flavour. It can be enjoyed now or kept for additional taste for a decade at least.

    `The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas is 100% varietal and saw time in barrique. It is purple-colored with a slightly brooding nose of black currant and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with some elegance excellent depth and savory flavors. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now. It will be at its best from 2010 to 2018.` 90 points Wine Advocate

    Deep, dark-ruby colour, this wine displays complex aromas of blackberryand plum fruit with a generous amount of cassis and hints of cedar andbaking spices. Full-bodied with elegant tannins, it shows luscious flavoursof blackberry, currant, cocoa, soy and sweet oak spices. The solid core ofdelicious concentrated black fruits is framed by light toasty oak and ripetannin. The supple and seamless theme continues into the long, ultrasmoothfinish.

    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.

    Deep and dark, this red blend is complex. Blackberries, violets and cocoa abound in the bouquet with cherries, rosemary and black truffle appearing on the palate. Lengthy, spicy finish with subtle tannins.
