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.

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso. This is very young and tight knit. Silky tannins, oak, fig, plum, black fruit. After about 2 hours in the decanter it is really showing well. Hold on to this one a few more years. — 13 days ago

Oblivion

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine starts with a strong nose that's full of dark fruit, and jam - reminiscent of a black forest gateau. It's fairly soft in the mouth, with a rich smooth feel that gives a bit of a vanilla oak in the finish, and just about covers the fact that this is a pretty boozy wine. Ultimately very nice, it's a little on the sweet side, and definitely more than a bit decadent. — a day 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. — 13 days ago

Three Finger Jack

East Side RIdge Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This wine plays the outlaw image to the hilt. Lodi Cab faces off in a dusty street against Napa Cab, the fastest gun in town. They both shoot straight, but in different directions. Three Finger Jack has a nose of rustic black fruit, tar, forest floor, with only a hint of graphite. The palate leans in a more elegant direction, but still stands its ground as an “outsider.” It's a delightful drink, with plenty of pairing power and the tannic structure to prove it. — 20 days ago

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.

Nice comparison! LB is infanticide, Martijn, just keep it. Try within 5 years. 😏

Viñedos Emiliana

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. — 23 days ago
