This is lovely! Smooth and elegant. Dark fruit, sweet but still complex if you take your time with it. Cherry cola. Anise at the end. May have found a new addition to the rotation. — a month ago

Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Ribera del Cachapoal Carmenere 2016

A really terrific effort and an incredible value. Velvety tannins, medium bodied. Initially shows flavors of raspberries which quickly give way to loads of mushrooms and smoked meat. A WS Top 100 — Well deserved...and way underrated. Scored it for under $15. Case alert! Stock up while you can find it if this is your thing. — a month ago

Millahue Apalta Red Blend 2011

A new upcoming Chilean icon blend @ £100-£120 that’s becoming a favourite of mine 😍 Did you know they play relaxing music to the wine in the barrel whilst it develops 💗 I reviewed the 2012 a few weeks back 😉 and can’t wait for 2013 to come out! I’ve still not tried their first 2010 release ... yet

Montes Alpha Colchagua Valley Malbec 2011

I’ve never liked a malbec more. Sorry Mendoza! Deep dark purple color. It’s big and bold but approachable somehow. Sweet licorice and plum on the nose. Nice combination of dark fruit, spice, and a charcoal but bright finish. Decanted 90 mins. An absolute bargain from Chile. I’m going to buy as much as I can at $16. — 3 days ago

Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot 2015

2015 Purple Angel is inky yet velvety with blackberry, blueberry and plum mixed with granite earthy tones. The small percentage of petit Verdot provides a classic Bordeaux hints on the nose. Still young but man it drinks well. Perhaps the best Chilean wine I have tried. Blockbuster aging potential — 20 days ago
