Winemaker's Notes

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."

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.

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.

The four stars represent more the value proposition here. For the price, it's a very good value. I prefer big reds... This one is a good every day red that stood up to my lasagne! It needed to breathe a bit at first but then was fine.

A great everyday cab to have on hand and can stand up to heavy foods. My husband and I really enjoyed this and keep several bottles on hand to grab on the go or just sit home and enjoy!

Bought the 2003 of the Veramonte and LOVED it. I got this 2006 thinking it would be as enjoyable but it didn't live up to it's predecessor. It is not a 4, but not a 3. I actually give it a 3 1/2. It's like a C+. medium body. medium aroma. not too big on flavor at all. that was a downer from the 2003. Not sweet, but not bitter either. No oak flavor. I have had other wines at this rating and this isnt quite there. I'd give it a 85-88 rating in all honesty. This is a good everyday, non-special occasion, dinner with the kids kind of wine for me. Get a case for yourself for an everyday wine. For $9.99, you can't get a whole lot better for an everyday thing.

Absolutely the best bargain on the net. Just bought two more cases. Very delightful and rich wine. Can't go wrong with this one. Wish my cellar was full of this stuff. Truly remarkable.

This wine is decent. Not great, but can't go wrong for the price. There are better ones even around this price but this is a good everyday wine.

3 is my highest rating under 20. Rich, and a real value. Depth of character rarely found in a $10 bottle of wine.

Veramonte represents a return to Agustin Huneeus' Chilean roots. When he spearheaded development of the Veramonte Estate in 1990, there were less than 100 acres of grapevines planted in the Casablanca Valley. The coastal mountain ranges surrounding the Casablanca estate create a unique terroir with a diversity of microclimates. The valley floor's cool climate is reminiscent of...

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

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,...
