Complex; berries, chocolate, spices, some tobacco. Smooth but heavy (14,9%), very sensitive in regard of serving temperature. Benefits from a longer decantation.
good aroma & complexity, excellent mouth feel, a best buy!! i was pleasantly surprised at what i thought was a varietal. but after tasting the first bottle, i came back for another and another and another! from the label, i could not tell that this is actually a blend. i am glad to find out that this is actually a blend of three varieties.
External Reviews for Viña Peñalolén Cabernet Sauvignon
Candied blackcurrants, raspberries, plums, and blackberries promote a deep nose where the toast adds elegant notes of sweet chocolate, mocha, and coffee. Dried herbs, flowers, and a mineral touch add an enhanced complexity. In the mouth, the structure of the velvety tannins is overwhelmed by a voluptous texture, offering a precise architecture and a long and bright finish where the fruit pairs with spicy chocolate and tobacco.
