Soft and buttery — 8 days ago
This has the garnet color and nose of an older Pinot that has developed...a beautiful earth, mushroom, real leather, all spice (or similar, and dried cherry fruit leather. The palate has tongue coating acidity and lush tannins. The dried cherry leather with maybe a hint of oak and vanilla come through and a touch of mushroom. Quite tasty over achiever. — 2 months ago

So good. Coronavirus relief. — 3 months ago
The nose was quite complex for a bottle in the price range, opening up with cassis, raspberry, bell pepper, and light barnyard, then turned to incense, vanilla, cured meat, and mint. The entry was soft yet bright, with fig and spice coming on strong on the mid palate. Fine elegant tannins.

This is the 2011 Veramonte Neyen Espiritu de Apalta from Colchagua Valley. I’ve asked Delectable to add it.
This was my best wine and best red Chilean wine I had in 8 days of tasting 12 different producers.
On the nose; dark ruby, ripe, currants, blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, plum with strawberries on the edges, dark rich, semi-sweet soil, black licorice, very light herbal notes, light black pepper, leather, sweet tarry notes, vanilla, cinnamon, core of anise, sweet loamy top soil, dry stems with dark fresh, perfumed florals and violets.
On the palate, the body is round and full. The tannins are round and velvety. Dark ruby, ripe, currants, blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, plum with strawberries on the edges. Dark rich, semi-sweet soil, black licorice, very light herbal notes, light black pepper, leather, dry crushed rock powder, tobacco leaf, vanilla, sweet tarry notes, cinnamon, core of anise, sweet loamy top soil, dry stems and dark fresh, elegant, perfumed florals and violets. The acidy is fresh, round and excellent. The long, ripe, ruby, elegant, well balanced, sexy, finish is drop dead gorgeous and lasts minutes.
Photos of; a side view from their entrance that shows the Chilean flag, coastal mountain range, the start of fall colors and their Estate vines. Branded wood carved bench, foxtails in bloom and their beautiful pound on the front grounds.
