Perez Cruz 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva (Chile)
This is the kind of wine that the Chilean's do best ... ripe with fruit and chocolate. It's just such a pleasure to drink and while-away the hours with. In truth it is a wine only the Chilean's can make and the reason why they have become so popular - it's not just the price. The nose smells of chocolate covered blueberries, lots of dark fruit and sweet herbs. The palate follows suit with a great concentration of black fruits, chocolate and plenty of sweet red fruit when aerated in the mouth. It's sweet yet dry, succulent and juicy, this wine has so much going for it it will be enjoyed by everyone - even those who swear they hate red. I have little else to say about this wine except go get some and enjoy.
