Immediately, black pepper on the nose. Cherry and raspberry follow. Good color, medium tannin, fruit forward and good for a Wednesday night dinner. — 4 days ago

Sierra Pinzòn

Valle Central Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It’s probably an 8.7 but almost every time I’ve had a Chilean cab it was not great but this was actually intriguing and nice. Perhaps because it was made in Napa using Chilean crop? — 10 days ago

Rogue Vine

Grand Itata Los Amigos Red Blend 2014

Dang, this wine has such a unique, complex expression, hopping across layered aroma and flavor categories! It’s a 2014 Rogue Vine, Grand Itata Tinto, Los Amigos Red Blend hailing from the granite hills of ITATA in Southern Chile.

This wine is made with 95% Cinsault and 5% Pais varieties, coming from organically grown, dry-farmed (no irrigation), bush-trained vines that are over 60 years old!!

This wine has a pale ruby hue with secondary garnet influences.

On the nose, it has developing, intense aromas of black cherry, strawberry, anise, mint, eucalyptus, potpourri, clove, black olive, rooibos tea, tobacco, cigar, peat moss, and leather.

On the palate this wine is dry, it has medium acidity, medium alcohol (12.8%), a medium body, medium(-) tannins, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. The finish lingers.

I love that this wine is the product of a fierce passion, shared by friends (and friends of friends), who have committed themselves to producing expressive Itata wines that are gulpably delicious! Salud!
