Echeverria

No Es Pituko Cabernet Franc

Cab franc is the most underrated of all cabs. This is natty in name but the funk is well restrained. Red fruits with clean, green pepper notes cutting though it. Perfect with roast chicken and a watermelon panzanella. — 4 days ago

Chêne Marchand Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Great sauv blanc. Beguiling honeysuckle and green tropical fruit, pear, kiwi. Very generous, comparatively round and textured for Sancerre but still high acid. This will age well.

Unsurprisingly, even better on day 2. A riot of fruit aroma.

9.2-9.4 over a few days.

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, coffee and chocolate wrapped in toasty oak. On the palate well pronounced flavors of ripe black fruits, blackberry and cherry, cassis, espresso and cacao. Soft tannins, long finish ending with oak, fruit and spicy earthy notes. Wow! — 8 days ago

Pascal Jolivet

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

At nearly 7 years old, the 2015 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre pours a golden color. On the nose, notes of bruised apple, ripened pear, honey and pineapple upside down cake. On the palate, bruised red apple, Bartlett pear, honey and clove. Decent acid. Long finish. I don’t usually age Sancerre…but I dig the expression that some age has brought. I paired very well with chicken fried rice. Drink now…unless you want to see how far it goes, you know, for science. — 9 days ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Baronesa P. Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2019 Baronesa P. is a combination of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Carménère, 5% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc from the Maipo Valley, aged for 15 months in 60% new barrels. Garnet red in color. The complex nose is dominated by the oak, displaying notes of cedar and pencil box, dark fruit aromas and a whiff of thyme. On the palate, the flavors are intense with taut but polished tannins. Broad and long-lasting with an oaky backdrop, this grows more profound when decanted. One to keep.

F.R.F Tinaquaic Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016

Deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of tomato leaf, blue and black berry, tobacco with a touch of green bell pepper. Pallet is rich and full of dark fruit, cocoa, wood, roasted poblano pepper and a touch of vanilla. A bit of tobacco, minerals and earth on the very long finish. Extremely complex and multi dimensional wine. Thank you so much, Kasey! — 7 days ago

Cousiño-Macul

Finis Terrae Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2015 Blend Fines Terrae is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 12% Syrah from Maipo, aged in new French oak barrels. Dark garnet red in hue. The attractively complex nose presents notes of ripe blackcurrant, mint, pepper, thyme, bay leaf, cigar box and dried flowers. Voluminous with a refined texture and dry, reactive tannins. The flavors are fruity and well-defined with the thyme that becomes especially clear at the back of the mouth. A lingering, complex red. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2022)
