For $10 you can't go wrong with this. Very Bordeaux-like approach. I would never guess this was from Chile. Read more

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.

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.

Chalky minerality on the nose. Lots of red and black berry fruit. Nose is rather tight on this. On the palate, it's got rich "warm" red berry fruit. Lots of flinty minerality. Some toasty oak. Hints of coffee grounds. Some bitter chocolate. It feels a tad gritty. Nice wine.

A disappointment. Since when do Cabernet Sauvingnon's have such over-ripe cherry overtones? The nose was cherry cough drop+pepper, but the taste was watery and unpleasantly bitter. The finish?...well, there really wasn't a finish. Sorry, but I expected more, even though this was a $10 bottle. I won't buy it again.

Bright red. Cedary redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by tobacco and musky underbrush. Medium-bodied, lightly tannic red and dark berry flavors offer good sweetness and precision, with dusty tannins on the close. Reminds me of Bordeaux.

What a pleasant wine! Not to mention, my father's favorite! This Chilean beauty is ruby in color with a nose of fresh, ripe, dark summer fruit, a little mocha and a hint of herbs. It is very well rounded in the mouth, showing off fresh strawberries and cherries. It has a somewhat juicy component that makes it pair well with grilled meats or even burgers. You cannot help but enjoy this wine for the price you pay and the great quality you get in the glass!

Bright red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, cherry skin and tobacco, with a subtle cedar note; smells like Bordeaux. Tangy red berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and herbal notes. Finishes brisk, with an echo of tangy berry skin and good snap. Fans of Old World cabernet should give this one a try.

Medium red. Sharply focused red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with complicating floral and spice qualities adding interest. Juicy red fruit flavors offer good clarity and finishing grip, gaining sweetness on the close.

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.


External Review

Overt and dark, with sweet, earthy aromas and plenty of telltale cassis. For a basic appellation Cabernet, this delivers the goods. The potent palate is packed full of plum, cherry, cassis and more. The finish is so chocolaty and full that it almost seems chewable. Well done.

Nice juicy blackberry and red cherry fruit, with vanilla, mineral and briar notes as well. Solid, juicy finish. Looks like a turnaround in the making at this winery. Drink now through 2005.

Winemaker's Notes:

The colour is deep red ruby. In the nose, the exuberant fruit is emphasised with great personality and highlights of ripe cherries, plums, truffles, blackberries and liquorice followed by a surge of black pepper, bay leaf, cloves and nutmeg. The oak blends in harmoniously adding to the wine’s complexity with aromas of vanilla, chocolate, coconut, graphite, tobacco, cinnamon and mocha. It possesses an interesting structure with balanced acidity, good volume and a persistent, soft and elegant finish. A wine to be enjoyed now or to await attractive evolution. Winemakers Notes
