Interesting Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. Part of the important movement in Chile to create wines with limited intervention: get away from the California / Internationalization of Chilean wine. Still has some clear signs of Chilean terroir, but much lighter than many other Chilean Cabernet Sauvignons on the market today and in this price range. Nose hints at being jammier than it tastes. More earth on the palate than the nose, but a nice note of earth there too.

Nose is fruity. Medium to full bodied. Tasty is not particularly fruity. Not a huge fan.

In my top 20 Cabernet Sauvignons under $50 I've ever had - with restaurant mark up. Usually around $23/bottle.

A decent red blend. Medium bodied that is the house red. I definitely would not hesitate to order this again.
