Major Chilean winery with 7000 acres of vineyards in coastal Colchagua Valley.
Cheap ok wine with no tannins.
intense berry fruit flavors with fresh minty tones outstanding rich flavor with lots of character.
This Grande 2009 was good, look forward to opening the 2009 Ultima . The 2010 Grande leaves much to be desired as partly reflected in low $7 selling price. I expect the 2010 Ultima to be below the 2009. hoochbear
Delicious - more sweet than dry. Juicy Fruits
Rating 1. Unfortunately, this vintage of Veo Grande Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Chile had a distinct chemical taste that was unacceptable, to say the least. Perhaps the bottling equipment had just been cleaned out, or even not properly cleaned before this bottle passed through. Because it is so young and inexpensive, I was not expecting a perfect glass, but it was terrible. I have had this label before and it has been acceptable. It was definitely not corked, but an altogether different nose and palate. I don't know if this was just a bad bottle, a series of cases, or the entire batch, but I wouldn't waste your time here. There are plenty of other producers that have good every-day offerings. If there was a zero, I would check that.
My wife and I are into our second case of VEO Grande Cabernet Sauvignon 2008. We have served it to our family and friends and I have yet to find anyone that did not enjoy it. No chemical taste or other impurities were noted. A good tasting economical wine.
