Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Wooden Salmanazar Colchagua Valley 2011
Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic production of Los Vascos (Chile) and is the grape that made the Baron de Rothschild (Lafite) estate famous. *The vintages all share a mature and fruity quality, fresh aromas, and a supple and fleshy structure.* 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.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Nice cabernet at a good price.
Great nose, quite bitter, rustic mouthfeel, long aftertaste
Coming from the Conchagua I knew this wine would be dry and full bodied, however I was extremely surprised how much it opened up after sitting for awhile, the complex falovrs kept changing and surprising me! A great buy for under 10$.
This simple wine is pale to medium ruby. On the nose, there are blackberries, minerality, earthiness, and a touch of heat from the alcohol. This is a youthful, lighter-style Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, there are bright flavors of black cherries, raspberries, and a medium length finish.
External Reviews for Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Wooden Salmanazar Colchagua Valley
Brilliant red ruby color. Pleasant mature fruit such as red cherries, raspberries and plums. Notes of sarsaparilla and gooseberry jam, glazed dry fruit, red fruit in syrup and white chocolate. Spices of black pepper, nutmeg, bay leaves, mint and cloves. Sweet, round, vigorous and elegant tannins. Good acidity with character. Simply delicious.
It is an attractive ruby in color with a very red fruit nose and some very chocolate and bay leaf touches. This wine is pleasant, excellent body, juicy and ripe. Highly concentrated with strawberry & cherries fruit notes and marked spices. Persistent and outstandingly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has a Bordeaux-like bouquet, perhaps no surprise given the producer, with notes of blackberry, bay leaf and sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with dry, slightly coarse tannins and a strong bell pepper and spice finish that shows good length, if not great finesse. Drink now-2014.
