|Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Always delicious, the Vina Tarapaca Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested in the Maipo Valley in Chile, offers delicious fruit quality and solid winemaking, year after year. The 2018 delivers aromas of raspberry, black cherry, black pepper, dried herbs, leather vanilla and oak. A full body with tangible tannins and well layered acidity, give the wine a long and delicious fruity finish. Palate: black plum, cranberry, black pepper, clay pot, mocha, leather and oak. Enjoy!
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Consistently a great value! Aromas of raspberry, cherry and eucalyptus with hints of dried herbs. oak and leather. Full bodied with some soft, drying tannins, and medium+ acidity. Fruit notes are dark berry and ripe currant, with some herbaceous notes and a hint of leather and a soft hint of vanilla on the finish. Enjoy this wine with any grilled meat or a hearty mushroom dish.
|Viña Tarapacá Gran Reserva 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fleshy, full-bodied savoury Cabernet red wine blend (with some Cab Franc and Petit Verdot) with ripe black raspberry, black plum, dark berry and toasty oak spice flavours on the palate. One for the BBQ. - Community Wine Reviews|
