When I first opened it I thought it was a decent wine, but on day two I found it quite enjoyable. It would therefore benefit from decanting if served when opened. For less than $3 at Grocery Outlet it's a definite bargain.

Definite nice fruit that opens into chocolate and tobacco. Much like a zinfandel without the fruit bomb. Nice spice especially early. Great value, drink now!

Winemaker's Notes:

Caliterra was established in 1996 as a joint venture between the families of Robert Mondavi and Viña Errazuriz. In January 2004 Viña Errazuriz became the sole owners of Caliterra, at the heart of which is the impressive 1000ha Caliterra Estate. The name Caliterra is taken from 'Calidad' spanish for quality and 'Tierra' - land. The wine making philosophy of Caliterra is to produce environmentaly friendly quality wines in the heart of the Colchagua Valley. The focus is around the 1000ha Caliterra estate in Colchagua where 242ha are currently under vine. Crucially a large proportion of this estate, and all new plantings, are on prime hillside sites resulting in high quality fruit and complex wines. Caliterra as a truly International brand, the focus has been on developing export markets as the basis for supporting growth. Today, Caliterra is sold in 50 countries on five continents. This 'Tributo Cabernet Sauvignon' shows a very deep attractive ruby red colour shows a young wine at the moment of its release. On the nose the wine is intense, but elegant, with acid perfume notes probably coming from the cherry aromas that also outstand. Barrel scents emphasize more than usual, but with a couple of months of bottle ageing the wine will be completely integrated. On the palate, very tasty notes and complex aromas enhance, although in a soft and elegant way. A long after tasting with a pleasant end.

Tasting Notes:

This intensely fragrant vintage exhibits aromas of fallen leaves, earthiness, walnut, and almond. Its flavor has a pleasant cedar wood tone with a fresh, fruity cherry that provides for a supple and long-lasting finish.
