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.
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.
A solid, fruity Cabernet with nice flavors of plum and berry and some sweetly spicy notes on the finish. Drink now.
Supple, with toasty oak notes, sweet vanilla, cherry and light smoke flavors. Has a candylike appeal.
Punchy and fruity up front, this Cab doesn't seem to be trying to do too much and thus it succeeds on many fronts. The cherry and plum flavors are clean if unspectacular, while the finish shows full tannins, some bitter chocolate and pretty good feel. Nothing out of the ordinary but perfectly fine.
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.
Wines like this helped Colchagua earn its Wine Region of the Year award for 2005. For not much cash you get a ripe, smoky Cabernet with black plum and cassis aromas as well as flavors of raspberry and cherry. Balanced and pure, with some vanilla and oak on the finish.
