|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.

Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is often overlooked by the masses and it's a shame. Chile can offer a complex and elegant Cab Sauv option from the New World and this is no exception. While the black fruit is plump, the structure and elevated acidity brings multiple dimensions to the wine. Hints of mint leaves, and cocoa spice adds to the elegance. This would be wonderful with Korean BBQ ribs and grilled shishito peppers tossed in sea salt.

Fantastic value at well below $20, this full mouthful of black fruit entices you with it's fresh and clean finish. Well made and correct, this wine over delivers at this price. Try with grilled lamb loin with a quince glaze and fresh greens with black olives @wrightwineblog

One bottle to the McSheffrey's for house warming in September 2021; the second bottle with filet mignon off the barbie with ET on Sunday. Well received although we had the 2016 Organic Wine, not the 2017 Cab Sauvignon I thought we bought!
|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 black raspberry, black plum, dark berry and oak spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm. Pair with beefy kebabs. - Community Wine Reviews|
