    This is an almost unbelievable price for this bottle of wine. Classic Cab characteristics of bell pepper, currants, and ripe plum are all present and are matched by hints of mint and oak. The wine has a fairly soft texture with some long tannins finishing it off. A big full bodied Cab like this calls for grilled meats and is easy to stock up on for the summer.

    If you're looking for a value Cabernet with classic varietal character, look no further. Aromas of blackberry, roasted plum, black currant, and green bell pepper let you know it's well-made Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, the fruit is confirmed in this medium + bodied red, while there is the addition of slightly earthy/savory notes. The structure and soft oak on the finish begs for red meat. Grab a case and some steaks, and you have the makings of a great BBQ. Can the price be real?

    Aromatically shows a sense of place as a Chilean Cab with blue and black fruit, a bit of mint, and bell pepper. The palate is soft and vibrant with lively acidity, mouthwatering black cherry, a savory note, and a fine-grain tannic structure that has some of that Bordeaux-like chalkiness. At five years on, this Cabernet is at the very beginning of its drinking window. It's very difficult to recommend cellaring at this kind of price point, but if you can squirrel away a case or two it'll go the distance without issue. Otherwise, decant for a few hours, or just don't worry about it because at this pricepoint you don't have to!

    Wow--this wine shows very open fruit right out of the bottle, with deep aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cedar. On the palate it is full bodied, with good structure and some earthy spice. As it opens, the wine integrates quite well and the boldness of the fruit comes into balance with the tannin structure and oak influence. Well worth the price!

    This is a deceptively priced bottle of Cabernet. A 100% Maipo Valley Cab, it opens with straightforward mixed fruit aromas punctuated by green herbaceous notes. I encourage you to approach this one with a skeptical eye. At first glance, a straight ahead Chilean Cab, the aromatics open to reveal charred poblano, freshly ground black pepper, licorice and black currant confit. A similar opening occurs on the palate, which shows deeply pitched black fruits, some scruffy savory notes, and a length and supple tannin quality which suggests a more serious (and seriously priced) Cabernet! For under $10 this is an absolute steal.
