Always nice to try this flagship wine of Chile. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cassis, roasted herbs, and slight roasted meat. On the palate, this is black cherries with underlying graphite. The wine had been decanted for a few hours and needed every bit of it. Medium tannins at that point. It is deep and powerful but nicely balanced. Long finish. Went great with roasted eggplant and other veggies. There may still be some upside but even if not, this is terrific now and should be at this level for at least another decade.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. It retails for around $12. The nose smells like geraniums. On the palate, this is sweet with bell pepper. This wine is flawed and should be avoided unless one tastes it first and likes it.
This is very good. It should be available for around $25 or perhaps a bit less in your market. Quite unusual. Ruby in color. The nose is cherries, with a slight botanical note. interesting. On the palate, it has a nice complexity to it. Cherries, candied cherries, earthy and slight vermouth notes. Nice texture. Good acidity. Works better with food. Good finish. Looking ofr something that's not the same old, same old - this is perfect.
Very nice value for this under $10 per bottle wine. This vintage is getting a bit long in the tooth but I suspect younger vintages are showing much better. Light gold/green in color. The nose has slight tropical fruit and a bit of oxidation. On the palate, this has a nice enough crispness. Fruit is present but faded. Not much depth but still alive and drinking nicely. On a budget, this is worth checking out.
Light gold in color with slight green. On the nose, there is grapefruit and slight lumber. Also some spice. On the palate, there is a tart acidity which is very nice. Grapefruit and citrus notes. Long finish. Really a quality Chardonnay for under $20, its hard to beat that value.
