Montes

Montes Alpha M Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Here's s beautiful red blend. A well balanced, great Chilean wine.

Dark inky in color.

Showing lots black fruits with earth, vegetables, spices, peppercorn, leather, cedar, leather, vanilla, dark chocolates, licorice, tobacco leaf and cloves.

Big, bold, extracted and spicy.

This 6 year old Bordeaux blend is rich, with great complexity and mouthfeel.

So very tasty already, but still young and needs another 5 to 10 years of bottle time.

Wine Enthusiasts 94 points.

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

Delicious and yummy.

Thank you sonny for sharing.

I paired it with BBQ Meats, cheeses and crackers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$95.

Viñedo Chadwick Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Well this was interesting. Tasting after eachother:
Lynch Bages 2009
Sena 2007
Chadwick 2007
In all honesty I hope the LB is just in a numb phase. It didnt do the trick yet. Still has a lot of acids whilst drinking. The nose however is great but taste wise it doesnt match.
Sena is as Sena can be. In your face! Plenty of everything: blackfruit, sweet, ripe, some wood, umami always. Very yummi.
Then the Chadwick that is close to perfection. That is Sena but distinguished. Calm but present. Lush and you taste it for minutes.

O Reserva Organic Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Color of different shades of purple, with some ruby tone, quite clear and nice legs. Nose is pretty good with tropical ripe fruits, like ripe mango, minty, vanilla, blackberry, and a bit spice. Taste is milky with some vanilla milk chocolate note, slightly sweet and grassy, low tannins, and fruity notes are really in the background, like strawberry and cherry, zest, a bit mineral, and a touch of black pepper. More mineral, more sweetness, and more tannins show in the aftertaste. Not your traditional cab, but will be welcome by most of the people due to her friendliness. — 25 days ago

Cono Sur

20 Barrels Limited Edition Pirque Viejo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

On a Chile night when the budget won’t stretch to Almaviva or Sena, then this will do nicely. Plenty of rich fruit and complexity, with some tannin structure and a dry but flavoursome finish. 2016 produced a lot of Bordeaux like reds in Chile, I have tasted some very enjoyable stuff from that vintage. — 15 days ago

Aves del Sur

Reseva Valle del Loncomilla Carménère

It's a very underrated wine. Rich nose. I know there are some fruits, but they are not important. They are an addition to leather, roasted pepper, tobacco (nose). It opens itself immediately. Mild on the palate, sweet. It's sweetness is a great balance between tobacco and some dark chocolate. And final surprise: third nose after the finish: coffee. — 6 days ago
