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. — 6 days ago

Rayuela Reserva Carmenere 2019

Simples e divertido, como pular amarelo amarelinha (Rayuela em espanhol). Uma calçada, um pedaço de giz e uma pequena pedra. Um convite a rememorar a simplicidade da vida que aviva.

Como este vinho, que traz aroma de amora, ameixa, pimenta negra e tabaco. Sabores de ameixa silvestre, chá preto e ervas aromáticas, combinadas com suaves taninos que levam a um final persistente e equilibrado.

Ninquén Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Blend 2012

This is 60-40 Cab and Syrah. Dark rusty, red. Smells like leather, red licorice, humid humus, and water plants. Flavors are big, smoky and pronounced. Black licorice, tobacco (cigars and pipes), and black cherry juice. This is a big, dense wine that hasn’t softened up much even though it’s almost 10 years on. Nice combo though of the unheard of Cab-Syrah mix. Got another bottle. Maybe age it another 10 years and see how it preforms. — a month ago

Reserva Sustainable Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

This wine looks medium-dark in the glass, a deep ruby color. The nose is rather rustic, especially for a Cab. That quality could possibly be due to a limited time in oak, for a Cabernet, only 8 months. There is currant in there, along with bramble and a strong minerality. The palate is on the rough’n’tumble side, with dark berry flavors and earthiness showing. The finish lingers and brings the savory side back for a revisit. — 14 days ago

Casa Lapostolle

Le Petit Clos Apalta Red Blend 2017

Decanted 3 hrs prior to tasting.

Aromas - medium intensity green pepper and quince, red plum, dark cherry, currant, slight damp earth. Savory and stony mineral notes emerge over time.

Palate - medium bodied, medium+ acid and ripe medium tannins. Ripe fruit and mineral across an expansive yet weightless mid palate and a medium + length mineral driven finish.

The structure and complexity are here to allow for aging and I feel this will be better in 4-6 years.

The group favorite in tonight's wine tasting, paired with Ribeyes. All 3 wines were very enjoyable.

Polkura

Marchigüe Syrah 2017

A nose of blackberry hand pie -

Dark berry, slate, saline, cherry stone, underlined coffee tones, tamarindo, swisher sweet tabaco, and crazy sour patch kid acidity,
Such a crazy wine - so good!

Polkura is the Mapuche peoples name for yellow slate - which is prevalent here.
