Buy Erasmo Cabernet Merlot Vina La Reserva de Caliboro
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2006 Erasmo is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from dry farmed Bordeaux clones aged in French oak barrels for 18 to 20 months. It has an interesting bouquet with notes of balsam, lavender and rosemary that takes some time to get accustomed to. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry. It offers quite bold, grainy, earthy tannins that lead to a foursquare finish offering ample fruit concentration. This Bordeaux blend has personality and charm, but would benefit from another couple of years in bottle. Drink now-2014-2017.”,,, (Dec 2012)
