Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Reserve 2012
Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic production of Los Vascos (Chile) and is the grape that made the Baron de Rothschild (Lafite) estate famous. The Reserve is the product of the vineyard's finest plots of land. Produced traditionally and aged in French oak barrels, it is characterized by its persistent and complex bouquet as well as a fruit-foward and soft style. *The vintages all share a mature and fruity quality, fresh aromas, and a supple and fleshy structure.*
Lovely nose, with cherry and raspberry aromas, and a bit of pepper. Nicely balanced on the palette, with a nice finish. Good value too at about $15 a bottle.
Afforadable, great with grilled meat, decant and let breath a bit before serving
We were introduced to this wine by the trained sommelier at our local, nationally acclaimed, culinary school restaurant. He also shared where he purchased this for home use when on sale. Promptly went there and bought a case @$9.95/btl, an exquisite value for this exquisite--for the price--wine.
deep bold nose of dark chocolate, dark fruit, currants, big! amazing with a steak dinner.
I say there is absolutely no differences between the Reserva and the regulara. This reminds me of a $10 2005 Bordeaux. Some cotton candy on the mid-palate. I would never guess this was a Cabernet. More like a south american pinot.
For $10 you can't go wrong with this. Very Bordeaux-like approach. I would never guess this was from Chile.
Dark ruby red. Aroma strong with cherries, blackberries and a touch of liquorice. Strong palate with chocolate and tobacco that is blended with oak and young tannins. Well balanced with a soft, subtle finish. Could probably use some more aging. I will try this again later.
External Reviews for Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Reserve
Deep ruby red colour. Complex fruity nose, ripe cherries and blackberries, firm figs and notes of cedar, tobacco, cinnamon, white pepper, mint and bitter chocolate.
Supple, with toasty oak notes, sweet vanilla, cherry and light smoke flavors. Has a candylike appeal.
An elegant style of red, this has bright cherry and cassis aromas underlined with firm, fine tannins. It's slightly short on the finish, but refreshing.
After control of the Los Vascos winery was handed to the famous Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) of Bordeaux, they used their longstanding traditional methods of winemaking combined with their unbelievable resources to highlight the true sense of terroir in Chile; this wine shows the influence of Old World Bordeaux refinement and elegance while adhering to Chile’s unique terroir, which provides interesting flavors and complexity to the wine.
Light ruby. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly oaked and tannic. Plums, black pepper, cherries. A wine of moderate depthy and character, with vivid, persistent fruit couched in an elegant frame.
Bright ruby. Highly aromatic nose offers a sexy bouquet of ripe cherry, black currant, fresh rose, tobacco and cedar. Suave, supple and sweet, with smooth red and dark berry flavors, gentle tannins and refreshing mineral bite on the close. Very sexy and drinkable now.
A solid, fruity Cabernet with nice flavors of plum and berry and some sweetly spicy notes on the finish. Drink now.
