Viña San Pedro Cabernet Sauvignon Gato Negro 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The old dependable black cat of Chile is back with this hearty, easy-going effort, showing spicy, jammy notes of red currant and clove. A no-brainer for parties and for fall Sundays over pizza and football.

In the beginning Vina San Pedro helped pioneer an industry that put Chile on the map. Later San Pedro helped drive innovation and the search for unique styles and quality terroirs from the extreme north in the Elqui Valley to the deep south of the Bio Bio Valley. In more recent years San Pedro helped establish Chile as a strong, diverse New World producer well-known for over-delivering across a range of price points. In 2008 San Pedro, a wine group with various labels in its portfolio, merged with Viña Tarapaca / Southern Wine Group to form Viña San Pedro Tarapacá Wine Group or VSPT Wine Group. Today VSPT Wine Group is the third largest wine group in Chile, and the second exporter of Chilean wine. The wines of San Pedro are enjoyed each and every day by wine-lovers in more than 80 countries all around the world. Labels include: Cabo de Hornos, 1865 Single Vineyard, Castillo de Molina, 35° South and Gato Negro. San Pedro’s global brands enjoy vibrant success in the most competitive markets, due to the variety, quality and consistency of its wines and distributor partnerships that both stem from an understanding of the wine trade 150 years in the making.

Deep bright red, with purple tinges at the edges. Intense ripe red fruit characters, ranging from ripe plums. The taste is full-bodied with ripe soft tannins giving good structure and texture. Good tannins and blackberry fruit flavor on the palate. Middle palate showing plumy flavors, and being very full, round and soft. On the finish, nice sweet fruit flavors.
