Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot

Needed extra time to really open up. Initially, very fruit forward but then turned into a more full bodied wine. Opened up for Matt’s 1st Father’s Day. — 12 days ago

Single Vineyard Colchagua Valley Carménère 2018

A beautiful expression of carmenere, lovely peppers with rich fruit, wrapped in soft tannins and terroir. — 16 days ago

Apaltagua

Gran Reserva Envero Apalta Vineyard Selection Carménère 2016

Compost on the nose, although we just opened this 6 year old bottle. So, ok. Truth time. We've had carmenere wines before and thought they were oddly flavored, off balanced, and overall not so great. Whew! Got that off my chest. This wine shows some real promise. Fully flavored with lovely red fruits, smooth tannins and silky finish. We enjoyed this and am sure it will open up. — 25 days ago

Clos Apalta

Valle de Apalta Red Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2018 Clos Apalta is 64% Carménère, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot from Apalta, Colchagua, aged for 24 months in 85% new barrels. The ripe, complex, clear nose offers prune, blueberries and blackberries along with pepper, tobacco, rosemary, cigar box and a whiff of smoke. Creamy and broad in the mouth with good volume, a firm flow and contained structure. The tannins set the tone while the mellow freshness underlines the sugary profile. A genuine Michel Rolland wine made during a year of subtle flavors. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2022)

Tributo Gran Reserva Valle del Rapel Cabernet Sauvignon

Aika tujakka mutta hyvä. Kiva maisteluun :) ei hyvä dokaamiseen. Siemailtiin juhannuksena.

Le Dix de Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Dry left bank Bordeaux style blend from Chile. Dry, and tannic. Not very green at all. One of my faves — 10 days ago

Clos Apalta

Le Petit Clos Valle de Apalta Red Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2018 Le Petit Clos is a blend of 53% Carménère, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot from Apalta, Colchagua. Dark garnet in hue. The complex nose offers plum jam, hints of smoke, herbs and pepper against a backdrop of cigar box and graphite. A ripe, broad, full-bodied red with precise acidity and a juicy, grippy flow (quite accomplished for the style), it ends with an intense, ripe finish. A red to hold on to.

Estampa

Reserva Colchagua Valley Viognier Chardonnay 2019

Light, low acidic, fine sweet taste while rolling a sip around the mouth, this bottle could be the best white wine I had so far during summer season. — 24 days ago
