smooth and filled with berries at first and then a kick of spices and cloves with a meaty tannic finish, has amazing potential to age longer

bottle says it can age for 10 years... thats questionable to say the least. This wine isnt bad, dirty nose, bark, stone, plummy. For the $ its a solid pick.

I can't quite remember exactly how this bottle tasted (no, I didn't black out from getting shit-faced) as it was awhile ago and I never reviewed it sooner. Other than the label, the wine doesn't stick out in my memory too much; therefore, I know it was a good bottle of wine but not the best...this review isn't helpful at all.

Autumn berries fruits with hints of cinnamon with young and intense bright purple red. Very clean and intense aromas with delightfully fresh red fruit and black pepper dominating the nose. Well structured and juicy tannins that evolve towards a fresh and mouth-watering natural acidity in the mid palate. The finish is long and shows a light touch of oak. Just fantastic with pasta cannelloni bolognese, and light red meats. Great for garden and entertainment.

Good solid Cab. Tight structure, nicely balanced - not too tannic. Cherry/berry fruit with hints of coffee bean/cocoa. Nice clean finish. Let it breath a for a bit. A steal at under 10 bucks.

A perennial Best buy Cab. The nose is smoky and rock-solid, with clean berry fruit and muscle. The palate is lively and secure, with balance, firm tannins, proper acidity and a tasty mix of cocoa, herbs and berry fruit. Finishes on the spot. Top flight in the under $15 category.

This is a rich and enticing red, with alluring aromas of warm cocoa and roasted vanilla bean giving way to lush plum sauce, cassis and raspberry ganache flavors. The long, smoldering finish is velvety and dripping with pure fruit, all of it backed by a suave tobacco note. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2017. 4,538 cases made. -JM ** Only 6 in Stock **

This merlot is pure weight and power, its aromas completely closed and its texture remarkably dense. If you open it now, have a generous slice of Manchego cheese to fight the tannins. Otherwise, wait a few years.

This friendly red offers a nice beam of briar, raspberry and blackberry fruit, wrapped with judicious toast on the finish. Drink now.

Gehört weltweit zu den besten Weinen gemäss Wine Specator! Das ideale chilenische Klima bringt vorzügliche und voll ausgereifte Carmenère, Merlot und Cabernet Sauvignon Trauben hervor. Die beste Voraussetzung für einen weiteren einzigartigen Clos Apalta von bester Qualität. Der gesamte Apalta Weinberg ist ca. 20 Hektaren gross. Das durchschnittliche Alter der Rebstöcke liegt bei über 55 Jahren. Jahresproduktion maximal 36'000 Flaschen. Der Wein reift während 20 Monaten in neuen französischen Eichenbarriques. Tiefe, intensive purpurrote Farbe. Eine komplexe, verführerische Nase von roten Früchten, Brombeeren, reifen Kirschen und Himbeeren, gemischt mit einem Hauch toastiger Noten von Vanille, dunkler Schokolade und Kaffee. Im Gaumen ein dichter, seidig-samtiger, sinnlicher Wein. Die perfekt integrierten Trauben von einzigartiger Qualität verleihen dem Wein nicht nur die Feinheit und die weiche Struktur, sondern auch einen schön ausgewogenen Charakter. Der Abgang ist lang und seidig. Ein beeindruckender und viel gesuchter Wein mit grossartigem Lagerpotenzial. Heisser Tip: kaufen und einkellern.

Color: Deep purple red color. Nose: Intense and complex, with different layers of aromas such as spices, black and red fruit, herbs and mineral touches of led pencil. Mouth: Elegant balance with velvety and well defined tannins, that evolve towards a concentrated mid palate that is filled with juicy tannins followed by a very long persistence. Service and food pairing: Open and leave to breathe for a couple of hours or carefully decant for minimum 1 hour and enjoy at room temperature; 16 to 18°C (60 to 65°F). Ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate deserts. - Winery

Intense and saturated, with dark aromas of pencil lead, tree bark, cola and black fruits. In the mouth, itrsquo;s full-force Cabernet. The blackberry and black cherry flavors are pure and satisfying, while the finish offers smoke, chocolate and coffee. This wine features ripeness and an overall quality rarely achieved by others in the price range.
