Walnut Crest Cab. Sauv. Premier 2001

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A great introductory Cabernet with soft, round tannins, this is an approachable wine, not too dry, with a refreshing purity of fruit. The flavors are of dark berries - blueberry, blackberry and currant. Easy red to drink, attractive for this price range with the added bonus of being produced from organically grown grapes.

Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impacts. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers.

At six bucks, we'd take a tasty mouthful for fruit without complaint, but Walnut Crest takes it further, offering a peppery, varietally correct Cabernet with enough tooth to grapple with a flank steak. A by-the-case buy.

It's hard to imagine getting a better red wine for five bucks which makes this one of the best Best Buys out there. On the mark at all check points, with ripe cherry and plum flavors and a clean, smooth finish. Surprisingly solid.

Shows the bell peppr and tobacco leaf side of Cabernet, but still has enough fresh black cherry to keep it interesting.

A light, smooth, mature red wine. Spicy, minty notes accent the soft caramel-scented black cherry flavors that sneak in on the finish. Drinkable now.

Mouthcoating, this wine is thick with ripe fruit and round tannins, offering berry, tobacco and herb flavors.

This soft-textured Cabernet from Chile has plenty of up-front appeal, with rich, dense, forward flavors of black currant and plum, and a price tag that makes a good choice when the occasion calls for multiple bottles. Drink now.
