Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vistamar Gran Reserva 2018 is an excellent value 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Syrah red wine blend under $20 from the Cerros de Chena Vineyard in the Maipo Valley. Full-bodied with a mouthful of dark berry, cassis, blackberry, dark cherry and pepper spice flavours on the palate and looking for a striploin steak done rare from the grill. Tannins are pleasantly grippy. Drink or hold.

Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah food pairings: grilled beef ribs, bison burgers, grilled game sausages.
