Winemaker's Notes

A ruby color of medium intensity. The nose is full of fruit with aromas of strawberries, blackcurrants, cherries and is pleasantly spicy. The finish is very typical of Chilean wine with hints of bay leaves and eucalyptus. It is fresh in the mouth, light, very fruity and balanced with good persistent tannins well blended into the wine. It is a tasty wine and very approachable.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Cedary redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by tobacco and musky underbrush. Medium-bodied, lightly tannic red and dark berry flavors offer good sweetness and precision, with dusty tannins on the close. Reminds me of Bordeaux."

Picked up a bottle from BJ's for $7.49 I get home, open the bottle up and the first thing I notice was a smell of rubber. I let it sit for about 15 min and pour a glass. The rubber smell is still there. I take a sip and guess what? That's right, I taste rubber. Yuck! Not my cup of tea. IMO, there are much better value wines.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
