Great value cab from an excellent region (colchagua). I'm learning that Chilean wine is a fraction of the cost of any Cali cab especially if you know the great regions and this is a perfect example! Notes of floral dark plums. It's savoury with balanced acidity and plums without being jammy minus herbs. Great gang wine with some good steak! Highly recommend for the wing it dinner parties! Stock up!

Wow!! Riesling is a staple in my house and I've been drinking it for a long time. This one changed the game! It's concentrated goodness in the glass! It's so decadent at 7.5% alcohol too. Enticing satin aromas of ripe peach, apricot jelly and petrol. Tempered acidity holds candied lemon zest, juicy peach and the finish is fresh and ripe! So balanced on the ying and yang (sweet and tang)!!! This Riesling is a spatlese (the second hierarchy of six on the sugar level in grapes). I would imagine this would be killer with some hot chicken wings!

Great value at this price point! Love the Mendoza cabs and this is a great example. Sick of uber bold grippy cab? You might like this one it's got some juicy notes without being jammy. Smooth plums, vanilla on the nose. Its concentrated and full body but smooth too. Black fruit, smoke and and medium finish! Enjoyed it on a weeknight with some chips.

Pretty awesome rose! Its dancing yay rose in my mouth! Lovely tart sweet tarts on the nose and zippy field strawberries on the tongue! Balanced acidity and great for sipping, salads or shellfish! Tasted May 2018.

Such great value at this price point! Red berries, slight vanilla cola and faint barnyard on the nose. Refreshing medium body ripe cranberries and underripe strawberries with mellow spice. It holds it own on a nice summer day served at 15 degrees. I really enjoyed it on a weeknight with a Dutch grilled cheese! It's good Pinot in the simplest form. Great to have more on hand for those hard days!
