Viña Peñalolén Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
External Reviews for Viña Peñalolén Cabernet Sauvignon
Opaque ruby. Smoky red- and blackcurrant scents are lifted by notes of black pepper and fresh rose. A sappy, appealingly sweet midweight that shows a seamless texture and vibrant dark berry flavors, with a hint of cured meat emerging with air. The smoky note comes back on the finish, which shows a slight hard edge and good persistence.
A complex blend of flavors: cassis, a little underbrush, and a mint-mocha undertone I find intriguing. A nice concentration of fruit and good structure at this price point. Plus it has a freaky looking head on the label. Everyone needs that in their wine rack.
