Los Vascos Reserve Cabernet 2008
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
deep bold nose of dark chocolate, dark fruit, currants, big! amazing with a steak dinner.
For $10 you can't go wrong with this. Very Bordeaux-like approach. I would never guess this was from Chile.
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.
9/20/2012 - SWEST WROTE: 88 Points Blackberry nose. Dry plum and velvety tannin prominent. Subtle cherry vanilla mid. Dry cocoa finish. Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment Options 3/10/2012 - VICENRIQ LIKES THIS WINE: 85 Points Garnet red, not too deep. Red berries, leather and pepper. Fruity finish, light bodied with a medium finish.
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.
External Reviews for Los Vascos Reserve Cabernet
The color is intense ruby with fine brilliance and orange nuances. The nose explodes with fruit: black cherry and blackcurrant (Cabernet), strawberry (Malbec), raspberry (Syrah), plum light mint and b
Nice focus to the juicy blackberry and brier flavors here, with toast and mocha notes, and a long dark fleshy finish.
Winemaker Notes - 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.
A beautiful ruby colour of average intensity. Its nose exudes ripe aromas of strawberry and black cherry accompanied by a pleasant touch of jam and chocolate. In the mouth, it is fresh, gentle, consis
A straightforward Cabernet Sauvignon from the Chilean property of Domaine Lafite Rothschild. It's extremely approachable, with ripe cassis fruit and soft tannins to please anyone's palate.
Here's a cabernet that shows fine integration of tannin and good concentration of cherry fruit, all in a relatively subdued style. Whiat it lacks in power or freshness, it makes up for in soft, mature fruit flavor. A solid Chilean choice.
