Gato Negro 2009 Cabernet-Merlot

Price: Around $4

Color: Dark cherry red

Nose: Blackberries

Taste: Smooth and round with good fruit flavor.  Nicely jammy.

Summary: Feels like this week has been my recession wine tasting week.  Two wines in the $5 class.  The Xplorador and now the Gato Negro blend.  But with Chilean wines, you can’t let the price fool you.   Good wine does not have to be pricey.  This Gato Negro proves that saying, with good flavor coming in at $4.00.

There’s a reason why Gato Negro is such a popular export from Chile.
