Cacique Maravilla

Vino Naranja Moscatel de Alejandría 2019

Pretty effervescent (like if you gave a Sprite a shake or two and it still had some bubbles). Musky, not too much acid, slightly grapefruity. Very solid skin contact. Feels well rounded and full bodied — 7 days ago

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. — 16 days ago

Massal 1945 Family Vineyards

Clos de Luz Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

I last had this a few years ago and it’s much better now. Nose has green olive, cassis, cedar, crushed rock. Concentrated but with resolved tannins and long, savory flavors and really nice balance. Showing my age here, but this Chilean red reminds me of what Napa Cabs from cooler vintages in the old days used to taste like 1977 for example). Surprisingly good. — 22 days ago

Herú Pinot Noir 2016

I find it too sweet and the color is frankly unattractive. It smells like grapefruit and raspberry mixed together with a pinch of volatile acidity. It’s lacking tertiaries and just stays in the happy red fruit range. #pinotnoir #chileanwine #chile — 16 days ago

MontGras

Reserva Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Color of egg white, quite pale. Nose is pretty good with ample amount of ripe fruits, like pineapple, tangerine, mixed with spice, mineral, and salty mineral. Sweet yet quite refined. Taste shows plenty of acidity, Sprite, spice, salty mineral, just a tiny bit watery. Aftertaste is a bit short with some more peppery flavor. Considering the price, totally a bargain. — 2 days ago

Viñedos de Alcohuaz

Grus de Alcohuaz 2015

Mezcla tina, or “Red Blend”
Syrah dominant, a helluva barnyard nose!
Heavier bodied, with bits of blueberry and apple skins, some sweet grass, tobacco, aged perfectly, (I got lucky), with the tannins complementing the star fruit acidity.
50% Syrah, 14% Petite Syrah, 26% Garnacha, 10% Petit Verdot.
100% Yum.

This is the first red wine I have had from this area, usually known for Pisco production.
