Veramonte Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2016

Member Review by Catnip:

Herbaceous aromas of pencil lead, bramble & underripe fruit. Similar flavors, although fruit is riper on the palate. Highly concentrated with much minerality. Medium body & acidity in good balance. Nice, long finish.

The wine is actually quite nice, as Chile has been producing some very nice cabs over the last few years. This wine has a great nose of leather, cedar and very subtle berries, the taste is smooth and quite dry with nice tannins for a long, pleasant finish. This is the type of wine I can use in my dinner, with my dinner and after my dinner as I enjoy a glass while watching the late summer sunset from the patio. Overall, I would rate this wine a solid, 3 by itself, but given that I bought this wine for the bargain price of $7 I can't help but boost this to a solid 3.5! So if you can find it, grab a bottle, cook some spicy tomato based pasta and enjoy!

Blood red color. First nose smells strongly of cheery Hookah reminiscent of college. The aromas are earthy, tobacco, blackberry and strongly of oak. Almost offensively before it opens up a little. Full on the tongue with mild tannins and modest acidity for a Cabernet. The finish is smooth and a little sweet for a light finish. As bluntly stated on the label this wine wood pair well will barbecue and friends. Pun definitely intended, this wine was made for chili!

This is like a heavy full bodied chilean Pinot Noir or a light bodied chilean Carmenere. Strong cherry notes with a really long finish of red Flintstones vitamins. Actually went pretty well with rotisserie chicken.

Expect huge earthy notes with a finish of black cherry, dark berries and chocolate. Pairs with brisket, roasts and other fatty red meats. Let this wine breath at least 30 minutes before drinking.

A little bit acidic and tangy but a nice big finish.

Delivering tasty brier and cassis, with a medium-weighted, fleshy finish, this appealing Cabernet comes at a smart price. Drink now through 2003.

Good black cherry and currant flavors on an easy-drinking frame. Hint of herbs on the finish. Drink now.

High-toned, with red currant and olive flavors and nice mineral and dust elements. Herbal notes linger on the finish. Drink with food. Ready now.

Dark in color, lush in texture and with lots of toasty, chocolate-scented oak, this polished Cabernet from Chile offers a lot for these few dollars. Light fruit flavors shows hints of plum and black cherry that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2002.

Sweet plum and cassis blend with oak scents in this small-scale claret, all presented with refinement. Dusty tannins add structure to the inky-textured fruit, its cassis flavors persisting beyond the lightly caramelized oak character. An intriguing wine, and a great value.

Ripe fruit and a jolt of oak give this Cab more volume than most Chilean reds. It offers pleasant plum and blackberry flavors with toast and licorice undertones and firm, round tannins. Drinks well now, at a consumer-friendly price.

Dense and potent, this wine far outstrips the expectations of its price. It's grown in Casablanca, a cooler region than most of Chile's vineyards, and an advantage in the hot, dry summer of '99. Here, ripeness was kept in check, a fine balance stuck between warm blueberry-blackberry richness and cool, charcoal-black tannins. Give it a couple of years in the cellar to let it show its full potential.
