Ok! My first post for 2020 and the first in a while at that. Tasting this one for some friends and I can say it’s waves of delight straight to the head. Blackcurrant and plum on the nose, followed by smoke and leather. Taste of tobacco, blackcurrant, and a lingering blackberry. Firm but smooth mouthfeel, perfectly balanced astringency. Mellows out in the glass!

It's time for Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nicely aged one from Chile.
Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim.
On the nose, blueberries, black cherries, black plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, dark coffee and black pepper.
Full-bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, leather, light bitter herbs, light earth, vinaigrette and peppercorn.
Long finish with smooth and elegant tannins and tangy cherries.
What a nice surprise. This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. Nicely aged with nice balance and complexity.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 45 minutes of airtime in a decanter.
This 12 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile is drinking extremely nicely now. Peaking now, with great complexity and a soft mouthfeel. Very tasty all by itself.
Thank you Elvira for sharing.
This is a great example of an under $20 wine that becomes delicious with proper aging.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
14% alcohol by volume.

En välbyggd Bordeaux-blend med påkostad smakprofil. Fin ren frukt som kryddas upp en hel del. Svartvinbär, rooibos, vanilj, kardemumma, blyerts, choklad. Bra grepp, långt torrt och friskt avslut. Bra utvecklingspotential. — 17 days ago

Friday night and had a taste for a Chilean wine so I picked up a couple Carménère. This first I chose was the 2017 Espino Carménère Reserva Especial by William Fèvre. A blend of 85% Carménère, 13% Malbec and 2% Syrah. You may know the name William Fèvre from Burgundy. William wanted to try and find another area for growing Chardonnay and went to Chile and saw the locals using the benches and he wanted something with more elevation so got land closer to the mountains. Here he is producing wonderful Chardonnay, Carménère and many other wines.
On the nose there is black plum, raspberry, cherry, smoked bell pepper, vanilla, hibiscus and some smokey notes.
On the palate there is green bell pepper, strawberry, raspberry, menthol, green peppercorn, spice and sandlewood.
This wine is medium to full bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + mouthcoating grippy tannins that leads into a pleasing long rich tannin finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 21 hours ago
