Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely, smooth blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere. Aromas of black currants, plum, and blackberries with a bit of bramble and smoke. Full bodied, medium acidity, with soft tannins, and concentrated, plush fruit notes on the palate. Enjoy with burgers or ribs.
San Pedro's Sideral is a blend of five wine grapes. For the 2016 vintage, it is Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. This is a juicy, medium-plus-bodied red with ripe black and red berries, dark plums, violets and soft spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are velvety. Youthful, but delicious. Pair with a meat lover's pizza. - Community Wine Reviews
