Santa Alvara Red Rapel Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In der Nase duftet er nach Pflaumen, Beeren und Kirschen, leicht süsslichen Gewürze mit feinen Eichennoten. Schön ausbalancierte Tannine im Gaumen mit einem angenehmen Finish.

Great bargain cab from the Rapel Valley in Chile. Strong hints on the nose and palate of strawberries and other dark berries, cassis and some nice tannins which should ensure the decade age-worthiness the label claims.

Firm, toasty aromas blend well with cherry and plum notes. The palate is healthy in feel, with good depth and balance. Tastes lightly herbal, but the heavy lifting is handled by black fruit and chocolate flavors. Peppery on the finish and very solid as a whole.

External Review

A touch jammy, with sweet red berry fruit and mocha-tinged toast. Briary hint on the finish keeps it honest. Drink now.

External Review

This friendly red offers a nice beam of briar, raspberry and blackberry fruit, wrapped with judicious toast on the finish. Drink now.

External Review

Nicely focused, with a racy core of fig, hazelnut and pear notes that stays pure and elegant as the toasty edge remains in the background. The finish is long and juicy. Very stylish.

External Review

The Marnier-Lapostolle Company of France, together with French oenologist Michel Rolund, is producing first class wine in Chile. This Cabernet from Rapel Valley is made from hand-selected grapes and aged in French oak barrels. Discover this complex and well-balanced wine that brings you the best of both worlds.

External Review

Juicy layers of raspberry, vanilla and cassis bush are backed by a bouncy, slightly raisined finish. Also contains Carmenegrave;re, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2009.
