Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Reserve 2012
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.Add winemaker's notes
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.
The bouquet of cassis, blackberry and controlled oak is welcoming, while the palate shows a spot of piercing acidity along with snappy black cherry, cassis and light olive flavors. This is a quintessential Chilean Cab with a hint of herbal character but also bold color, power and very good fruit quality.
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.
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.
Produced in partnership with the owners of Lafite-Rothschild, using methods traditional in Bordeaux, this is a very nice wine with chewy cassis and plum flavors enhanced by a touch of cedar and lightly toasted oak.
Los Vascos, one of Chile's oldest wine estates, is controlled by the owners of Bordeaux's Château Lafite-Rothschild. Characterized by grace, elegance and balanced fruit and oak flavors, it would pair well with steak, lamb chops or grilled chicken livers.
