La Mujer Caballo Mitad Caballo White Blend

Blend of Valencí (70%), Muscat of Alexandria (10%) and other still unidentified white varieties (30%). Fermented with indigenous yeasts and 5-day skin maceration, and aged in stainless steel and oak barrels for a total of 8 months. Amber color. Beautiful aromas of candied fruit (candied orange), honey and floral notes (orange blossoms). Powerful, full-bodied, quite dense on the mouth, but feels fresh nonetheless. Dry, austere. — 10 months ago

Caballo Loco Number Fifteen Red Blend

A wine we brought back from a wine bistro called Boconariz in Santiago a couple of years ago, this is absolutely terrific. Beautiful, intense red-purple color, the tannins are sweet and rich with a great hint of camphor on the nose. Well-integrated tannins with a rich mouthfeel, that camphor component is a bit more amplified on the palate, but not overwhelming by any means. Lingering, balanced finish. Hard to gauge how much longer this will continue to develop, but my guess is that’s it’s peaking right now. Terrific example of a carmenere! — 3 years ago

Caballo Blanco Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc Merlot 2006

Buty was delicious. It has aged well and grape blend is one complex wine. I will buy again — a year ago

Caballo Loco Number Nine Red Blend

Valdivieso of Chile, central valley, Caballo Loco #8. 14% alc. This blend is unknown as the grapes are not mentioned on the bottle. The color is ruby red with a tint of brown like we see in most French wines. The bouquet is like an Italian Sangiovese with hints of blueberry pie and dandelions. The palate is characteristic of dark cherry and blueberry and a hint of dark currant. There is a slight hint of oak and moss. No spice, no other real flavors that I can detect. A very simple wine. The finish is quick and mildly dry. Not my favorite, but not bad for a South American wine. — 3 years ago
