Deep, dark ruby red. Concentrated blackberry and black cherry aromas with well-integrated oak. Juicy red and black fruit highlighted with earthy notes and elegant oak that lend a creamy mouth feel. Plush with soft, rich tannins, this wine is concentrated, round and luxurious with a long finish.
A great vintage! The Colchagua Valley experienced an optimum growing season with excellent ripening throughout March and April. The extended hang time resulted in ripe flavors and very soft tannins.
"Inky black hue. Powerful scents of black cherry, rum cake and allspice. Velvety tannins and creamy flavors of blueberry and blackberry with hints of cinnamon and mocha. Plush tannins with cherry, chocolate and vanilla in the close."
Tasters Choice Selection 92/100
I purchased the Cabernet and found it an awesome buy. Very smooth, very full-bodied. When I re-ordered wine.com substituted Veramonte's Primus, a gentler, softer red blend which was also an excellent, full bodied red wine. I loved both of these wines and would highly recommend both of them.
Great wine at any price. Fantastic bargain. Our new everyday wine.
I love Chilean wines and was pleased to see a couple of Veramonte selections below $10. These are great drinking wines. The Cab is full-flavored and dry. It has a beautiful deep read color and smells slightly of summer fruits (dark berry) and oaky. It has tannins, but is not overly acidic. I read that it was "velvety" and this is accurate. I bought another case and may buy one more to store.
