- Frei Brothers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
90 points Wine Advocatet
Another outstanding effort as well as a sleeper of the vintage is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color, deep, medium to full-bodied flavors, lots of black currant, underbrush and loamy soil notes intertwined with a hint of oak, and a robust, extroverted, impressive finish.
- Penley Estate Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon
90 points International Wine Cellar
Distinct blackberry/ blackcurrant (Cassis) flavors are the characteristic of a good Coonawarra
cabernet sauvignon. Mulberry and blackberry are dominant fruit flavors enhanced by a young tight
palate with silky grape tannin and elegant complex cedar oak, so typical of the Penley Style. A
wine that is closer to full bodied with more grape and oak tannins but still maintains beautiful
- Santa Rita Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon
91 points Wine Enthusiast
A profound Cabernet from Santa Rita's home vineyard in Alto Jahuel. The hue is dark and opaque, while the nose is deep and earthy, but also intensely fruity. Shows fine structure and a lot of black cherry and cassis. The real deal in affordable Chilean higher-end CS; offers a little of everything, from spice to herbs to olive to fine fruit.
