2014 Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Quick Sip
I do enjoy wines from Chile and tonight's offering is no exception. From the northern banks of the Tinguiririca River, you will find the vineyards which produce the grapes for these balanced Cabernet Sauvignons. The grapes were harvested late April and aged 12-14 months in American Oak. Chilean wine is also very economical and tastes more expensive than its shelf price.
The nose shows nicely with blackberry, plum, cherry with hints of earthiness and currants. The mouth so good with red raspberry and cherry followed by plum and rich blackberry. Hints of currant, dusty earth and toasty oak round out the mouth. I could sip this wine every day
Time to explore more wines of Chile.
