|Carla rated this wine as 4.2/5 with the following review:|
For the price, this is a really nice wine. I enjoyed it with finger foods and stuffed jalapenos. The full-bodied flavours paired well with the heat. The back label on the bottle describes a toasty oak on the nose and it lingered nicely at the finish. While I personally enjoyed the bottle, the friend I was with was not as enamoured. To each their own.
|Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 4.2/5 with the following review:|
In PKNT Cabernet Sauvignon the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals discovered wine as a brain teaser. How does one explain the "acronymistic" name or the red chili pepper on the label? Solving puzzles is why we love writing these wine reviews. We always learn something new. The chili pepper is a mnemonic--everybody knows when you drink wine you become forgetful, so slapping a vegetable on the label when so many other wines feature animals translates into instant memorability. Besides, the wine is from Chile, so there is a homophone happening and if you look closely at the label, you can see a map of Chile. Or maybe it's just the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals who can see Chile inside the chili. According to Alex Rubio, co-owner of PKNT, the acronym has no meaning but he hopes you read it as picante. PKNT is hot commodity--the company has grown from nothing to over 200,000 cases per year almost overnight. The cabernet inside the iconic bottle is pleasant--jammy, medium bodied with well-tamed tannins--and the price is right, but the product is not nearly as impressive as its marketing.
