Isla Negra Reserva Seashore Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet black and blue fruits wrapped i sweet toasty oak spice notes greet the nose. The oak is a touch aggressive on the nose and air brings out a smoky, charry edge. Rich and dense in the mouth this offers up edgy blueberry and blackcurrant flavors layered over cedary oak and dried herb tones. the acidity is well integrated and the tannins a bit dry and splintery at this stage, and wood driven. There’s a lot of oak on this on the backend and the moderately long black berry tinged finish. This is powerful and rich and unabashedly oaky. Don’t wait too long to drink this, the oak will outlive the fruit. 86pts

Our main goal is to create expressive and innovative wines from one of the world's southernmost wine regions.

Erittäin herukkainen ja mausteinen viini. Sopii erinomaisesti esimerkiksi pastaruokien kanssa, miksei myös hyvän pihvin kera, mutta tätä juo myös mielellään seurajuomana. Erittäin miellyttävä maku ja toista lasillista odottaa innolla. Ilmaa täytyy antaa kunnolla, jotta kaikki makuvivahteet tulevat esiin.

Light-bodied, but with honest grip supporting the red and black cherry fruit and briary, vanilla-tinged finish. Drink now.

Roasted, leafy aromas greet you, followed by familiar scents of cherry and plum. The body is light to medium, with citric acidity turning the raspberry and pie cherry palate in the direction of snappy. Lithe on the finish, with a quick fade-away.

Ruby-red. Fresh blackberry and cherry aromas are complicated by hints of underbrush and licorice. Juicy and ripe on entry, with lively acidity giving focus and definition to the sweet dark fruit, coffee and chocolate flavors. Could use a bit more heft but this is a very approachable and easy-drinking cabernet.

California-style Cabernet for half the price! Fruit-forward, dense, laden with cassis and tobacco. Great quality, great value wine from award-winning producer Cono Sur.

Berry aromas are clean, attractive and as expected. Structured and a little tannic in the mouth, with spicy, lightly oaked berry flavors that are as normal as can be. Finishes with herbs, mocha and juicy acids along with a touch of tomato.

All of the 2005 Cono Sur entry-level wines are showing nicely, including this Cabernet. The nose is fairly floral and touched up by lavender, while the palate is racy and defined by zesty red fruit. It's kind of a throwback in that it emphasizes light fruit and acidity over oak and heft.
