Art Indómita Valle Central Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Funky label. Arty. Smells like grass and grapefruit. Flavors are juicy and dry. Limes meet apples from the Granny Smith tree. Balanced. Nice for the price. — 4 days ago

Viña Vik

La Piu Belle Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

N: Manure, loam, spicy dark fruits ( the wife says no manure) definitely earthy and dirty, crushed blackberries, smells like a few cahors I’ve had.deep and dank.
P: Raisiny but not cloying, tart yet controlled, tannins quite resolved.
Very round on the palate. Delicious.
14° Easy to quaff.
This is no monster, consensus is it would work w poultry, some fish. We had beef stew.
For what it’s worth @Decanter gave this a 98.

Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Ming L
9.0

Along with cassis, fresh herbs, mocha, and eucalyptus, I really like the fresh red fruit notes here: raspberry, cranberry, and perhaps pomegranate? The supple palate offers more ripe dark fruit profiles. Juicy acidity and ripe tannins.
This will age nicely for another 5 years.

Casa Lapostolle

Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard Carménère 2019

Deep Ruby with medium intensity aromas of black and red fruits with herbs, pepper spice and toasty notes, has 12% Syrah in the blend, aged for 16 months in 10% new barrels. On the palate flavors blackberry and blueberry with notes of tobacco, pepper, dried herb spice with slight sweet tones. Well balanced, vivid acidity, full ripe tannins, full-body ending with toasty vanilla character. Very good, bottle age will benefit. Nice value! — 2 days ago

Cousiño-Macul

Antiguas Reservas Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Rusty red/brick & almost brown around the edges. We were worried this wine would have gone bad, but quite the opposite! My husband said this was about $10 when he bought it in 2012.

Port-like notes with plum, sweet purple fruit, and strong oak. Very sweet & long tannins. I absolutely loved this!!

Concha y Toro

Don Melchor Puente Alto Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Considered one of the best vintages of Concha y Toro’s top Cabernet Sauvignon - with tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (5%), Merlot (3%) and Petit Verdot (1%). From 100+ years old vines in the Puente Alto appellation in the Maipo valley (reputed region for Bordeaux varieties). Elegant, refined nose with aromas of dark fruit, prunes, leather and hints of mint. Silky tannins and flavors of marinated cherry and chocolate. Complex. Long finish. Excellent wine — 15 days ago
