Given the greenness of Carmenere I've been awaiting Cab Franc from Chile. This 2010 delivers albeit on the new world, richer side of the spectrum. Nice stuff!

Cracking bottle of real wine that satisfies like franc should for under $20. Sign me up for a flagon or two!

I tasted the reserve especial version. Vinegary not so smooth but decent.

Way too gasoline like for me. I tried decanting and it still wouldn't calm down.

Love Chilean wines and so excited to try this Cab Franc! It was delicious! Fruity, a little tart, a little dry with a dark chocolate finish! I had the 2011 vintage and will get it again!
