San Pedro Gato Negro Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Spicy berried fruit with typical warm and savoury flavours from the South of France. Fruity, soft and easy drinking in style.

Founded in 1865, Viña San Pedro figures among the largest and oldest Chilean wine exporters and is one of the country’s most important wineries, with presence in more than 80 markets on all five continents with its brands Cabo de Hornos, 1865 Single Vineyard, Castillo de Molina, 35°South, and GatoNegro. This wide brand portfolio allows it to target a great variety of consumers throughout the world. San Pedro’s main plantations, the winery and the centenary underground cellar are located in Molina, at the Curicó Valley, 200 Km south from Santiago. An area gifted with gentle rolling hills and frank soils on volcanic tuff, with privileged climatic and geographical conditions for grape-growing. Here, San Pedro owns one of the largest continuous areas of vineyards in South America, with 1,200 hectares. But besides this, San Pedro counts with more than 1,500 hectares planted all along the Central Valley and in other Chile’s main viticulture valleys, such as Elqui, Casablanca, San Antonio-Leyda, Maipo, Cachapoal, Maule and Bío-Bío, being always in search of new and better origins and flavors for its wines. Today, VSPT is the second largest Chilean wine exporter and stands at the first place of the fine wine’s segment in the domestic market. Read less

One of best Bonarda in Oltrepo' pavese ! You can start with a really fresh 2009 till a really serious 2006. The wine becomes less fizzy and bubbling more concentrated. Fresh red fruits are predominant. It' very good with starters and pasta, expecially filled pasta as ravioli ( very typical in the Oltrepo') in a good beef broth or with a stew sauce. Also ideal for bollito misto ( boiled beef, chicken, salami, tongue...). The most interesting in my opinion is a really"natural" flavour is wine made with modern technology but in ancient style !

This wine is very inexpensive. With that being said it is a lot better than a lot of other wines that sell for more. It's not too oak-ey and not too full bodied. It is a great wine for the price. We regularlybuy this for $6.00.

A bottle is only $3.99, so it is no bad for daily wine.

Couldn't finish the bottle, ended up throwing it out. Didn't pair it with food though.

Warm and fruity, this medium-bodied blend is packed with succulent red berry fruit flavors that are nicely complemented by subtle notes of tobacco and spice. Gentle tannins on the palate lead into a fresh fruity finish.

Pale green appley, grapefruity Grüner with a lively intermingling of crisp acidity and stony minerality. Finishes with a lingering touch of white smoke. Just ideal with green salads, anytime of year!

The Gato Negro Cab Sav has a nice spicinesses with cherry and plum flavours. The tannins are still quite prominent so I expect that aging it a couple of years would be beneficial. I liked this wine,

Champagne Moutard is a traditional family run business situated in the picturesque village of Buxeuil, France. The vineyards are located in the southern part of Champagne, on the sunny slopes of the Cotes des Bar. Very old cellar books relate their activity as vine growers back to the 17th century. Region: France / Champagne / Eau de Vie Maker : Francois Moutard Notes : Abundance of ripe dark fruit on the nose with intense expressions of prunes on the palate, with a rich, long aftertaste. ABV : 45%
