Cenit 2008 by Viña Caliterra

Grape Variety: 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Malbec, 21% Petit Verdot, 15% Carmenere

Very good plus wine with medium plus fruit intensity and medium grippy tannins. The mix of red berry and dark ripe plums has a smoky note and sweet dusty herbs. The wine has good structure and balance. Drink now and for the next 7-8 years.


Seña 2008 by Eduardo Chadwick

Grape Variety: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carmenere,
10% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Outstanding wine with intense mixed red and black fruit and developing complexity. The tannins are very mature and well resolved, the oak is sweet and adds baking spice and is not intrusive. This wine will age well and increase in quality for the next 10 years then continue to drink for another 10 years.


Purple Angel 2007 by Montes

Grape Variety: 92% Carmenère, 8% Petit Verdot.

Very good wine with good complexity in its lush dark fruit and minty chocolate, the vanilla from the oak needs another year to integrate. The grippy tannins balance the acidity and add to the Long- finish. This wine has good structure and is drinking well but will improve for 3-5 years.
