Viña Peñalolén Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley 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.

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.

Dark ruby red, spice box, red fruits, good depth and concentration, medium-long finish.

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.

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.

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.

Bright red. Pungent aromas of red currant, cherry compote, licorice and smoky herbs. Sappy, nicely focused red fruit flavors become spicier with air and are supported by tangy acidity. Finishes with good nervy persistence and a faintly bitter quality. Give this some air or a year or two of bottle age.

More Bordelais in style the Pena family adds a small percentage of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot to this Cabernet Sauvignon to round out the aromas, flavors and mouth-feel. Overall it’s a dark, brooding and balanced wine ready to stand up to any hearty dish.
