Primus Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Ming L
9.1

Tasted this about a year ago so I think it’s time to check in to see how it develops after a year.
Stay pretty much the same. Cassis, raspberry, black cherry, steeped black tea, light peppery spices. Vanilla has faded further. Medium body. Lively palate with cool acidity.
Remarkable freshness at this age for a cab that cost around $15.

Ossa Sixth Generation Red Blend 2010

Again OSSA delivers. A little less opulent as the 2008 we had a few weeks ago. So next bottle is for next year.
This will surely last a few years if not another decade.

Quinta de la Rosa

Ossa Sixth Generation Red Blend 2008

Incredible wine! Showing age with a thin edge but that only visuals.
Nose full of black berries, almondpaste, chocolate and even aceto balsamico (xxx old). In the mouth very well balanced in all aspects. Tastes and power vs finesse balance. Finishes over a minute. Blockbuster wine!

Single Ferment Series 215 BC Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo Pais 2019

First wine grape planted in North America? You have my attention. Fascinating history of this varietal that I highly recommend reading up on if you’re lucky to have a friend like @Brendan Devine buy you the Wine Grapes tome. The wine itself is really tasty, desert-like in your mouth and has that full almost raisiny note that a lot of natural wines have. Give it a shot. — 8 days ago

Laberinto

Maule Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I haven’t had a Chilean white in some time. I want to like it more than I did-it’s well made, offering mid palate richness & some complexity, with a lively green, unripe fruited palate. It’s that fruit, though, that doesn’t agree with my palate- it’s so.... green, & it really stands out. This would make a really interesting pairing with veal pacata, or an asparagus dish. Still, over delivers & a serious QPR. I could imagine someone who likes this kind of fruit rating it higher — 23 days ago
