Borobo Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2004

Still ruby at centre with a wide ruby/garnet rim, showing a bit of age, but about in line with expectations . Quite sweet, blackcurrant fruit. Touch of spice and coffee, cocoa. On the palate , a sweet attack, showing more black fruits , tobacco, liquorice and allspice . A pretty big wine , though it is just about balanced, alcohol is noticeable. Not much refreshment value here, quite difficult to see myself drinking more than a couple of glasses! Tannins are quite fine grained , sweet. It’s a blend that I don’t understand to be honest, not sure what the Pinot Noir brings to this. It’s an interesting wine nonetheless and quite well made, but it is a bit of a curiosity , perhaps. It is drinking well now, I don’t see much improvement , though it will still last for a few more years. — 9 days ago

Solid. Super solid. Been a while since I’ve had a carmy and I’m so glad to be back with this one. Creamy chocolate layered over blueberries, prunes, and vanilla. Acidity holds its own too, you could age this beauty. — 4 days ago

Estate Bottled Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Earth, wind & fire. We thought merlot (actually Malbec) but no, Cab Sauv is the way to go! Particular highlights were the raisin in the tobacco. — 2 days ago

Reserve Malbec 2018

Buen vino me gusto, frutado, fresco, equilibrado, ciruelas maduras, pimienta, en boca, generoso, de cuerpo medio, lo acompañe con unos ñoquis al pesto la salsa receta de la Nonna agregamos una milanesa de carne, con lo que el plato fue contundente, nada más que decir, con el vino quedo muy bien, ¡Armonía total! Disfruten saludos

You can take the wine out of Chile, but not the Chile out if the wine. Tasty but you know where it comes from. — 13 days ago
