Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot 2007

Deep ruby thin rim still with a pink hue. Primary fruit still, blackberry, blackcurrant , touch of spice. In the mouth lots of ripe black fruits, ok to reasonable length. It doesn’t come across as overly complex , not many different flavour profiles , though this may come with more age. Full bodied, the tannins are sweet , acidity in balance. Cocoa and coffee notes on the finish, slight warming alcohol . Nicely made wine , showing well now though I am sure it may age further . Very little development as yet. — 7 days ago

Red Blend 2012

Моё первое первое вино. Глубокий непрозрачный темно-рубиновый цвет с фиолетовой каймой слегка завораживает, сразу как бы намекая на некоторое присутствие пти вердо. Засушенные дикие ягоды, финики, подлесок и мята. Очень плотное, почти жующееся, шершавый поначалу танин после декантации смягчается до идеальной шелковой консистенции. С долгим развитием появляются грибные и травянистые нотки, солома, немного резины и минералов. Пряный финал, длящийся буквально до того момента, пока рецепторы не ощутят что-либо иное. Нельзя сказать, стоит ли оно своих немалых денег, но расставаться с ним очень не хочется. Сутки спустя третичка чуть более выражена, но в свежести и ягодности вино не теряет ничуть. Впечатляющий экземпляр с потенциалом выдержки лет эдак в 50. Найс. — a day ago

Red Blend 2008

An interesting Chilean blend (40% Cab Sauvignon, 30% Carmenère, 30% Petit Verdot!). Dry, earthy wine with a lot of structure yet to mellow (that’s a lot of Petit Verdot). High in alcohol (14.5%) but doesn’t taste too hot. I visited this winery in 2011 and spent an afternoon with Mauro Von Siebenthal tasting his wines. — 11 days ago

Montes Alpha Colchagua Valley Malbec

That lovely smell of the fog that happens in the early morning, burning off from the vegetation- slowly thriving and decomposing under its smoky blanket.

Heavy bodied with the classic South American vegetal flavors, green pepper, tomato stalk, garden herbs. Smokey tannins tempered by an almost citric acidity.
Love this winery.

Massive wine but has some elegance to compliment its sheer 'presence'. Beautifully pure red fruits. Velvety and seamless tannins. Beautiful with steak. Not sure it's a $100 bottle but it is very very good — 16 days ago

La Capilla Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Черносмородиновый джем, сочные лесные ягоды, завяленные, или даже зажаренные фрукты - банан, инжир. Не слишком богато на третичку, но вино уверенно развивается в бокале, обнаруживая мяту и хвою, сигарный дым и некоторые травяные нюансы. Превосходный КС, без сомнений имеющий неплохой потенциал выдержки. — 2 days ago

Clos Apalta Limited Release Carménère Blend 2010

Beautiful blend from Chile. Only got to decant for an hour but the layers and complexity on this were obvious early. Going to hold our others for a bit. One of my favorite wines. — 9 days ago

Espíritu de Apalta Colchagua Valley Carménère Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Blend from very old Cab Sauvignon (planted 1889 ) and Carmenere grapes. In a great phase now - surprisingly gentle and elegant. — 14 days ago

Crucero Collection Colchagua Valley Carménère 2015

I found a new love. In all my years of stanning for a cab (Sauvignon), I think I’m ready for a side chick. Her name Carménère! 💜 She’s very dark, fruity and light on the tannins. A little spicy but definitely a BBW. And the color, wow! Deep violet. The wine leaves a remarkable impression as the flavors like the longer a bit. Enjoy and brush your teeth when you’re done drinking. I’m sure my dentist is over me and reds. 🍷 — 8 days ago
