    January 27, 2011 - If I hadn't known where it was from I would have guessed France. Solid structure, good acidity, decent finish. Cab lends a nice backbone, carmenere adds the smoke. Old world style. Definitely need to try on day two to see if it opens up and fleshes out.

    January 5, 2011 - Like the vintage bicycle on the label suggests, this was never going to be an easy or a flashy ride. However, if you give this wine a fair chance and picture yourself on an old bicycle, on a dirt road in the Colchagua valley, everything is easier from there. The tannins are at times slightly bumpy but at other times present and pleasant. What I liked the most about this wine is its honesty and balance. The Carmenere grape provides a solid, yet soft dark fruit structure. The Cabernet Sauv gives the wine acidity and balances the fruit nicely. In addition to the dark fruit, I picked up interesting aromas of pepper and spice, cloves and cinnamon. A decent well behaved wine that can be a good companion to a wide variety of dishes.

    December 2, 2010 - Belle puissance! Juste assez de retenue pour éviter que le vin deviennen trop agressif. Un beau fruit rouge légèrement confi en attaque (framboise et une mûre subtile) suivie de belle note boisée. Également arômes de poivron vert. Finale en épice et des tanins très bien équilibrés. Consommé avec des cotellettes de porc avec sauce à la moutarde de dijon : un vrai délice. Excellent rapport qualité-prix pour 15,10$ à la SAQ (+10694376).
    Pourrait facilement être consommé lors d'une discussion dans une froide soirée d'hiver :)
