Price: Around $7
Color: Deep red
Nose: Spicy and berries
Taste: Nice soft tannins right up front. On the dry side with a balanced long lasting finish.
Summary: This wine feels pretty well balanced for being a sub $10 cabernet.
This wine will pair very well with a nice pasta dish. I’m actually enjoying it with a hearty tomato based vegetable stew that I cooked up two days ago. The base is mostly leeks with tomato and carrot. It also has potatoes, corn, Peruvian beans, cilantro, a little lemon juice, pepper and salt. It is wonderful going down with this wine.
At $6.99 pick up a bottle or two. By the way the little burlap sack is a throwback to olden days when glass jugs in Chile were covered with burlap to help carry them and maybe buffer each jug from the other and breaking from contact.
