|Adam Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Not since I opened a Double Mag of 98 Sena at the Bearfoot Bistro a while back, have I tried a wine from Chile this well made! Don't get me wrong Chile is fun and love Con Sur Viognier just like everyone, but this is quality! I'm not sure that I am down with the name "Crazy Horse"(Translation), and I don't appreciate that they have given themselves "Grand Cru" status, but the wine is damn good. None of that Chilean foxiness that we are accustomed to. Dark black cherry, clean, well made and not over priced. This is a Cab/carmenere blend without the hgh note that tends cause the dis-interest of serious wine drinkers. Also the Caballo Loco 15th edition, No vintage blend was also a lot of fun, pricey but tasty. However I suggest that there is better Value at 65$ from Italy, Spain or France. It's made with the best intentions, Grand Cru? that's up to you decide. the quetion remains this! Is 65$ to much for Chile?
Ask Rothschild-Escudo Rojo
Chadwick-Errazuriz and Sena also Terra Andina(great for 11$)
I feel Chile is the Portugal of the New World, it's still there, but many have forgotten!
