Community Tasting Notes 2

    June 3, 2020 - Failed to take good tasting notes for this but this is a surprisingly restrained cab. No sign of oak or alcohol or extraction, just fresh and juicy tart red fruit, with a little herb and red pepper. Fairly light in structure with M acid and M- tannin, M- body; this is good for now but I would drink soon. This is simple but for a $14 Cabernet, as balanced and enjoyable as I could hope for. This was a great pairing with Beyond Meat ‘beef’ tacos (highly seasoned but low spice); probably the best wine and Mexican food pairing I’ve tried yet. ~5.5/10

    July 26, 2019 - This was my first Cab from Chile and I was not impressed.

    Aroma had fruity notes of black berries and plums with hints of spices.

    The palate had the traditional Cab flavors of black berries and plums with hints of cedar and a touch of Mint. However, this wine came across watered down and hot (strong alcohol taste). With 13.5% alcohol I was expecting a medium+ body and more structure. I guess I felt left down.
