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.
This wine drinks very well.I blind tasted it with $20 bottles and this one was right there. I bought a case and now its my everyday cab.. cant go wrong with this for $9.99 !!!
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!
Blows away many California Cabernets at much higher prices
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.
I have had this wine a few times and it is great.
This is one of the best wine buys that we have made.
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.
Amazing for the price. Have had many bottles of $50 wine that was not this rich.
Highly recommend this wine. Great price!
not the best, very average
This is a very nice Cab and can't be beat for the price.
$10 bucks gets you a very nice drinker. Hold schmold... Worked well with my steak and my spouse's gnocci. Mixed well with our libido...
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.
This is the first 9.99 wine I have tried and liked. I like the spice, and earth. Not too fruity. I did miss a long finish...
I expected a stronger wine. A bit wimpy.
