Echeverria Cabernet Reserve 2006
Viña Echeverria is a long established Chilean estate winery fully owned and managed by the Echeverria family. The vineyards and winery are located in the outskirts of the town of Molina, Cuico Valley, the wine heartland of Chile. They produce fine wines with a commitment to quality and excellence. This Cabernet Sauvignon combines aromas of ripe cherries and strawberries, with hints of chocolate, spices and tobacco. It is a full bodied wine, with round and mature tannins, and a long lasting finish
I absolutely love this wine for the price. It reminds me of the Owen Roe I drank on a lesser scale. My brother says I love "fruit bombs" (and I do), and this is an elegant fruit bomb - one that doesn't attack your palet or your senses... After passing this wine through my aerator, I experienced ripe cherries, strawberries, tabacco, with a slightly dry & pleasant woodsy finish... one that lingers for a happy few moments. Oh, and a hint of pepper at the end. I would glady drink again... and in fact, I think I will! Pick yourself up a bottle. Oh, and if my memory serves me correctly, I like this bottle more than the white and silver embossed "Limited Edition" (which costs more). Additionally, I would rate this 5 glasses and I'm trying to reserve that rating for the absolutely stellar (from this point forward).... so I'm rating it 4.5.
External Reviews for Echeverria Cabernet Reserve
From the Curico Valley of Chile comes this Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich with pretty blackberry and red cherry fruit aromas and a touch of mint on the finish.
Bright ruby red with purple hues. Intense aromas of strawberries, blackberries and cherries, blend smoothly with notes of coffee and tabacco. Round and silky on the palate, it has a fulfilling mouthfu
Das Bouquet ist komplex und angenehm. Dieser Reserva birgt Räuchermandel- und Schokoladenaromen in sich kombiniert mit rotem Pfeffer und Johannisbeeren. Ein weicher und würziger Wein.
Ein weicher Wein, doch zugleich intensiv und lange anhaltend, reife Tannine verleihen ihm Feinheit und Eleganz.
