One of the first case purchases I made when I started collecting right out of college. Turned out to be a killer value at $10-12/bottle. Highly pyrazinic but balanced with just enough fruit.

So, this was a baller. This wine started out amazing...ripe fruit, vegetal and some of the developmental notes, but started out tasting like 10 year old Bordeaux. Unfortunately, it the glass it fell apart quick. So, we went with short pours after that...

1985--amazingly in good shape though fully mature Cabernet. 30 years later and this $12 wine was delicious.

I liked this compared to others among my group. Bright red stewed fruit, fresh, bay leaf and bell pepper. Good weight considering the color isn't that dark. Definitely different,.....

Medicinal at first, with pungent eucalyptus, that over time resolves into bay leaf, inky black fruit, and bittersweet chocolate/oak. A nice change of pace.

Tobacco, pepper, oak. Very spicy. Plum and blackberries. Enjoyed this one the most. Pair this with a hearty and rich red meat dish.

Beautiful ruby in color with a purplish/ reddish rim.

Nose of blueberries, cherries, blackberries, vanilla, wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, graphite, dark coffee, vegetables, earth and leather.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, oak, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, dark chocolates, peppercorn and bell pepper.

Medium finish with firm tannins (after 90 minutes) and cherries.

This is an above-average Cabernet Sauvignon from Valle Del Maipo in Chile. Balanced with mild complexity and earth notes.

Beginning its drinking age now. Enjoyable by itself or with food.
Needs time to open up properly and show complexity and tannins.

I paired it with Chilean BBQ steak and grilled veggies.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.
