Don Cayetano is a winery founded by Luis Felipe Cayetano Edwards (“Don Cayetano” is his nickname) in the Colchagua Valley of Chile in 1978, though the brand itself didn’t launch until the 1990s. Wine growing and production eventually expanded into the Leyda, Maule, Casablanca and Maipo Valleys. The wines are available as dry reds, whites and rosés in young and reserva styles.
Dark berries with smokey overtones. Tangy finish. Unfortunately leaves a metallic aftertaste.
I don't really drink reds as my wife doesn't like them, but we had this one sitting in the wine rack & we decided to give it a try. What a delight no sooner was the bottle opened then the rich & fruity scent filled my nostrils. Unlike other reds I have tried this one tastes as good as it smells. It is a rich dark purple red colour & tastes of full summer berries, (blackcurrant, raspberries & cream with a dash of cinnamon & nutmeg & dare I say it a hint of red chilli peppers. If you're looking a nice red to drink on its own this is the one, its very More-ish & very very drinkable. Even my wife enjoyed it with a dash of tonic.
