Xplorador Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
External Reviews for Xplorador Cabernet Sauvignon
Lightly firm and toasty, with good raspberry and black cherry fruit laced with a grilled herb note.
Opens with briar, raspberry and a spot of char. The palate is basic, simple in feel, maybe a touch curt, but overall the wine is fresh and tastes of plum and herbal berry fruit. It's slightly dry and leafy, but it's bright and fresh in the mouth, with good balance.
Good black cherry, plum and vanilla flavors in this fleshy, medium-weight Cabernet, with a round, smoky finish. Drink now.
Juicy flavors of ripe Morello cherries float on the silky texture of this cabernet. It's light enough to drink chilled with grilled salmon.
Light and fresh, with red berry fruit and a hint of herbs. Drink now.
Kicks off with some balsamic and olive aromas, while the palate is full of black cherry and berry fruit. Round and clean, with a soft feel despite having real tannic backbone. Likable in a mainstream way.
Ripe and ready, with powerful dark fruit. This is a fine "starter" Cab from Chile and Concha y Toro, one that will impress novices and satisfy the high end drinker as well. The palate is lightly sugary, but the black fruit is ripe and tasty. And the tannins are there, as they should be, although they're not overwhelming.
