Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Nose: plums, dark cherry, tea, blackberry, dust. Color a little light for cab - but smells more refined than the color would suggest. Tastes good - smooth, medium weight, not as silky I would like - but nice flavors of cigar and graphite and some spice and mildly bitter herbs (bay?). Doesn’t have the weight or mouthfeel I prefer, but the flavors are definitely above average. I like it! Good deal at $14. — 6 months ago

Had on the night we listened to Primus and bought a bunch of concert tickets. Big Nose guy recommended. Really interesting complex and leathery, but drinkable! — 9 months ago

Apalta Colchagua Carménère 2019

This is a big wine. High tannin, ripe black fruits, peppery, and oaky. It should be paired with heavy dish. — 4 months ago


Primus The Blend Apalta Colchagua Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

The blend pours up to a medium-dark garnet color. Aromas of cassis, tobacco and spice are up front on the nose, with a hint of bell pepper in the background. The fruit is juicy on the palate, with jammy black and red berries and a stout set of tannins. This wine was made for steak, the bigger the better. — 7 months ago
