Casas del Bosque Gran Estate Selection 2007 Private Reserve

Price: Around $50

Rating: ★★★★☆

Color: Dark red-violet

Nose: Red berries, cherries and toast

Taste: Medium bodied and very round in mouth. Velvety smooth all the way through to the finish. Nice acidity with soft tannins.

Summary: This was among my two favorite Chilean red blends that I tasted at the recent Wines of Chile blogger tasting event. I was pleasantly surprised by its smooth and mellow manner. Its a very nice and heavy bottle, a suitable receptacle for its content. Nicely refined in all aspects. Pass the Grey Poupon please!

The blend consists of 61% Syrah, 26% Merlot, and 13% Pinot Noir. Originates from Chile’s Casablanca valley.
