Lomas Del Valle Quinteto

Loma Larga Lomas Del Valle Quinteto 2015

Casablanca Valley, Chile

CarrieMac scored this wine: 95/100

This blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec has dark fruit and a hint of mint on the nose. It's full bodied, smooth and brimming with juicy dark fruit and oodles of cassis. Nicely oaked and balanced tannins with a long tasty finish. Serve with grilled beef or smoked pork tenderloin.

Fifty shades of wha…???? Full bodied and smooth with layers of red fruit, chocolate, vanilla and spice. An explosion of flavor on the palate. Perfect for candles behind locked doors or pair with smoked brisket or roast pork loin. A must try!

Clear medium gold in appearance, lovely soft and floral on the nose. Full bodied and rich with lively acidity, flavors of caramelized pear and light toasty oak. A fantastic accompaniment to rich buttery seafood dishes.

CarrieMac scored this wine: 92/100

A full bodied "purple" wine filled with plush aromas and succulent flavors of black fruit, vanilla and spice. Mouth filling, balanced tannins and a smoky finish. Absolutely perfect with garlic-tamarind beef. This would be awesome with pulled pork or sticky beefy ribs as well. Cannot wait to try the next vintage.

Dark garnet in the glass, this Malbec has aromas of plum and dark berry fruit and spice. Full bodied with flavours of plum and dark berry, smoke with a lovely blueberry finish. Enjoy with smoked pork loin.
