Hacienda Araucano Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2011

Member Review by Kyle Graynor:

Both tastes and looks (you have to look hard) like chocolate. Spicy and a little tart at first, with tannins that overpower the fruit, but leave a nice, if slightly strong, finish.

Hacienda Araucano:
These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity

Smooth chocolatey nose with the kind of wood aromas that I like in a wine, not overdone at all. The mouth has a dry, kind of funky earth attack, with some chalkiness and apple fruit acidity in the middle, and a smooth finish that shows a hint of white pepper.

Smooth and balanced cocoa and spice aromas. Palate is almost sweet, with loads of candied red fruit on the attack, melting into dark blackberries and well integrated oak the whole way through. Finishes with a bit of tar.

This wine is has a very spicy nose, with a very herbal finish. Hints of cracked pepper and chocolate, with a very bitter lingering feeling at the end.

This is a young, bright Cabernet that I found appealing. Usually I find these inexpensive fruit-forward Cabs to be jammy or cloying, but this one is quite pleasant. Just don't expect a lot of complexity or intensity. Would go well with lighter grilled meats or pizza. I would also put this in my "crowd pleaser" category. Good value at $10.

Sattes Dunkelrot. Ueppiges, typisches Cabernet – Bouquet mit Duft nach Pfeffer, Unterholz, Holunderstrauch. Kräftiger, pfeffriger und frischer Wein, feine Gerbstoffherbe und etwas Extraktsüsse. Unkompliziert aber nicht langweilig, toller Weinwert in seiner Preisklasse.
