Non-discountable item
Medium-dark ruby; sleek, glossy, good legs. Nice aroma of vanilla bean and white pepper. Spice. On the palate, smooth with a chewy tobacco profile, drinking well already. On the feminine side, rather plump and voluptuous, with no hard edges. Nice lingering fruit in the finish. Clearly not French or American, truly a wine showing its South American origin.
Robert Parker: The 2011 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon offers a fragrant, floral bouquet of pure black cherries and cassis, hints of violets evolving with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with cedar and melted tar on the entry. There is a touch of dryness and austerity to this Cabernet. It has very good weight and dimension, although there is something on the finish yearning for a little fleshy Merlot. This is a good effort though, and it should drink well over several years. Drink now-2017.
