Viña Peñalolén Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Member Review by aronowm2:

Extremely smooth with a nice coffee element. Tobacco as well. Two of the major vices are tasted here! Just a solid all around effort.

I'm a fan of the fruit bombs and this is one of them. Very in your face. Loved it.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon offers violets, spice box, and blackcurrant in its expressive nose. Supple, smooth-textured, and easy-going, this nicely balanced wine will provide pleasure over the next five years.

Quite minty, but fleshy and balanced, displaying good dark currant and mulled plum fruit backed by a broad, toast- and loam-filled finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported. -JM Dark ruby red, spice box, red fruits, good depth and concentration, medium-long finish.

Richly textured, with layers of herbal tea, licorice, eucalyptus and spicebox intermingling with deep black fruit flavors. Incredible complexity for the price! The 15 months spent in French oak add toasty mocha and subtle spice elements, while the small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot blended with the 85% Cabernet Sauvignon give it just the right amount of lift and roundness. Very food-friendly mdash; try pairing with herb-crusted lamb, hearty vegetarian dishes (especially with zucchini) or beef with goat cheese.

Vivid ruby. Powerful aromas of cherry, dried flowers, licorice and mint, plus a touch of woodsmoke. Then broad and creamy on the palate, offering gently sweet red berry and cherry flavors and slow-mounting spiciness. The finish shows subtle sweetness and good tannic grip; this is still quite youthful but shows good promise.

Dark red. Spicy red berries and herbs on the nose. Fresh redcurrant and cherry flavors are light in body and refreshingly tangy, with no obvious tannins. A bitter chocolate note adds edge to the tightly focused finish. Irsquo;d give this a bit more bottle aging, or decant it.
