Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Great value Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo valley in Chile. Deep purple wine, balanced acidity and tannin, dry and medium full bodied. Aromas of black cherry, black currant, mint, raspberry, a hint of red currant and an earthy note. Flavours on the palate include mint, dark cherry, vanilla and a touch of violet. Great with barbecued beef and hard cheese such as cheddar.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

One can count on Chile to deliver typicity and value in the majority of wines produced there, and here is no exception. Black cherry, cassis, and plum intermingle with smoke and earthy notes. Grippy tannins and lively acidity coupled with a full body. Finish exudes ripe dark fruit and toasty oak character. All this wrapped in for less than $18 in the Ontario market. Ideal summer BBQ wine when grilling pork, beef, and vegetables.
From the Maipo Valley Viña Tarapacá 2017 is a Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon. Earthy with ripe dark berry aromas on the nose, this full-bodied red is savoury on the palate with ripe black raspberry, black plum, dark berry and oak spice flavours on the palate. Pair with beefy kebabs. - Community Wine Reviews
