Casillero del Diablo Malbec 2018

A rich crimson with purple tinges showing its youth. A full bodied Malbec with dark cherry and plum flavours with a touch of black pepper. I have had plenty of Malbecs from Argentinia but this was the first from Chile. Made to be drunk now. — 3 days ago

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. — 19 days ago

Seña

Sena Hillside Red 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 yo perfection. That is Sena but distinguished. Calm but present. Lush and you taste it for minutes.

Viña Almaviva S.A.

Almaviva Puente Alto Red Blend 2003

The nose is nice, but shy. From it, you can feel the ripe fruit, but you would never guess the beautifully structured wine that follows. Very long, silky and full bodied. Nice green apple surprise when the wine evolves. Will be remembered with a smile. — 20 days ago

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

Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

WoW. Great wine. True to type Cab S but so full. So much power. Mokka, cherrie, cedarwood, chocolate and the blackest blackberries one can find.
Long finish.

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.
