Same notes - this has become my muse, my heart of darkness for the evening, such a lovely wine with so many dark things wrapped into it, tabaco, dark berry, black licorice, roasted stout grains, wow. Nice re-entry wine! Such great aging. — 5 days ago

Gravas Rojas Puente Alto Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Deep ruby, almost purple, hue with pink rim variation. Subtle color extraction on the glass. Nose offers fig jam, raspberry preserves, and blackberry bramble with sweet tobacco, oak, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, roasted green bell pepper, oregano, and peat notes. Palate is dry and consistent with the nose. More noticeable oak on the palate and soft tannins. Love this Chilean Cab! Vintage 2015. ABV 14.5%.

Los Lingues Vineyard Carménère 2017

Dusty cellar nose.

This is a big and unique wine, with lovely jabs of cacao, green pepper, oil cured olives, cassis.
Delicious tannin and acidity, long and hefty.
A great wine, and a still undervalued grape.

Carmenére so underdone and...sometimes I think yah it is a grape GREAT to blend for missing components but so fun to try and discover on it’s own...I’m most certainly not an expert on the variety though so...

@Ellen Clifford You are Spot on, it has so much merit blended in Europe, yet for me they really stand alone in Chile. All about the terroir..

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. — 18 days ago

Freakshow Lodi Zinfandel 2017

Color of ruby with purple shades, quite clear. Nose of chocolate, tobacco leaves, leather, dried strawberry, strength of alcohol, and blackberry. Nose is quite powerful. Taste is dominated by concentrated dried strawberry, ripe juicy grapes, some brown sugar, hint of flowering note, spice, a bit peppery, and a bit zest. Zest shows up more in the aftertaste. Low tannins but full of flavors. — 13 days ago
