Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Tasted it, then went straight to the LCBO to buy a bottle for Sunday dinner. There is so much going on in this wine. Blackberries, black cherry, sous-bois, porcini mushroom, fig newton, smoke and a hint of rolled tobacco. Stunning. 93 Points.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Surprising aroma of herbs - mint, oregano, thyme, with a background of dried prune and dark chocolate. Very interesting.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Mouthwatering and rich, this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile is a great expression of this varietal. You'll find notes of dark plum, blackberry, vanilla and subtle notes of dried herbs. An excellent choice for BBQ. Tasted May 06, 2018.
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Interesting bouquet of medicinal cherry, cedar and dried herbs. Smooth with flavours of blackberry, tomato vine and eucalyptus. Excellent balance and very smooth.

Got a Cab Sauv lover in your life? This one a great find for someone who appreciates the diversity of this grape!

Would pair well with a beef roast with herbed potatoes.

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Juicy strawberry, blackberry, fern, cigar box, smoke, vanilla and oak will scent your glass. Orzada Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, created by Odfjell winery in the valley of Maipo, Chile, presents ripe strawberry, black cherry, notes of tomato vine, black tea, tobacco, crushed almond and oak. Full bodied with long finish, this wine has complexity and is well balanced. Pair with red meat or sip on its own. Enjoy.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep opaque ruby coloured. Full bodied and funky with notes of dark skinned plum, smokey tobacco and leather. Flavours reveal peppery cassis, barbecued and grilled red bell peppers, mint, eucalyptus , smoked paprika and dried bay leaves. Fun and foxy. A great pairing for rare peppered steak, or herbed lamb chops. 89 points - tasted May 6, 2018
Odfjell Vineyards Orzada 2014 is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley. The wine was aged in oak barrel for 10 months, of which 19% was in new French oak barrels, 18% in new American oak barrels and 63% in two year old barrels. "Orzada" is a nautical term for sailing up against the wind before setting a direction. - Community Wine Reviews
