Central Valley, Chile

Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

Le Dix de Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Solid Bordeaux style with the addition of plenty of Chilean sun, you can’t go wrong. Flavours are more Christmas spice than I would have expected with a rich dry fruit finish. Not in the Alma viva leagues but a good drop. In fairness I started this too cold after a spell in the fridge but it really started to evolve as it warmed up and also on the second day. If there was a 9.05 score option that would be right. — 11 days ago

Echeverria

Limited Edition Central Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Very smooth. Long finish, yet tannins don’t seem to stick to your tongue. Rich flavor bit doesn’t overpower seafood. Excellent flavor for price point — 5 days ago

Mezcla Tinta 2016

A lovely nose of roasting green pepper.

This is a well made and well executed wine,
With medium bodied, dark, thick, lovely fruit a slurry of everything I am looking for right now.
Do not be alarmed! Mezcla translates as ‘Blend’ and what a well made blend this is.
A wine to while away time with...

Carmen

Frida Kahlo Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Color of saturated ruby with a mix of purple shades. Nose of vanilla, dried strawberries, hickory, dark ripe fruits in general, and a bit oak. Nose is round and refined. Taste of smoke acidity, ripe dark skin grape, cherry tobacco, mineral, sweetness from fruits and vanilla, a bit minty and zesty. Quite chewy and mouthful, very Syrah like. Aftertaste is medium long with sweet and zest note and backbone of tannins. I think she is pretty decent. — 22 days ago

Pipeño Laja País

💯th wine. Ayyy.

Slight cigar smoke, blueberry compote, straight up raspberry jam, rosy rosy bouquet.

This one just puts a smile on my face. It’s unpretentious, approachable, and just tastes damn good. Simple, drinkable, jam juice.

Cherries under the tongue, berries on top, slight leather in the mid.

1 liter of jammy farm wine please.
