Is there a better red wine from Chile?  What a treat!  Robust flavors of java, currant and chocolate sustain for a long finish.  This is a brilliantly made wine.  Ready to drink immediately, but should be extraordinary in years to come.

2005 - Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Charcoal-broiled grapes
Nov 03, 2010
1 star 1 star 1 star
This is a very inexpensive Chilean cabernet sauvignon, the Caliterra Reserva.In the glass, it shows as a very deep magenta. On the nose, it shows a dark, brooding, charred grapes quality.The palate comes across as both sweet and charcoal, bringing lightly sweetened, blackened plum fruit up into the sides of your mouth. Fat finish, moving to alcohol. Three stars out of five. At price, makes it an outstanding value.More reviews at spiritofwine.blogspot.com

2006 - Cono Sur Chardonnay, 20 Barrels
Refreshing & Livey Chardonnay!

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
Bright yellow with a shiny green hue. Very fresh. Lots of stone fruits, nectarine & peach in particular, with some crisp apple. Lively acidity supports the the gentle flavors of oak with some nuttiness on the long finish. Very fun to drink, this tastes great now with or without food, but would be fun to enjoy at the start of summer for the next half-decade or so. Highly recommended.

I was fortunate enough to get this wine as a gift from my good friend.  It has been a while since I have had it, but if I remember correctly it is an organic wine.  This Pinot is a nice light, fruity wine.  A great wine for someone who is just getting started in the world of reds!

This is an amazing red wine I first came across at Target, of all places.  A delicious wine to either pair with a meal or as a stand alone glass.  Great fruit flavors in this bottle.  I would be willing to bet that you will not be disappointed when you try this!

Best Chilean Cab
Oct 07, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
This is one of the best Cabs I've had and surely ther best Chilean Cab I've ever tasted.  Full bodied with loads of black fruit.  Strong and Jammy with a good amounts of vanilla and chocolate.  Its a flavor parade on the tongue.  This wine will show well through steak, roast beef, lamb chops, and even spicy Indian food.

2007 - Root: 1 Cabernet Sauvignon
Young, Affordable and Ungrafted Cab
Aug 27, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
I spotted this wine at a local Costco in San Diego stacked in beautiful wooden boxes. The presentation was certainly worthy of a $100 Bordeaux wine, however, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the price at $9.99 !! The bottle had a lot of information about the name, the summary of which is that the vines are from ungrafted original European root stock (pre phylloxera). Chile is blessed by the mighty Pacific to the West and the majestic Andes to the East, forming a protective cocoon on its vines and the wine from this bottle is the reward! The wine has a medium ruby color with aromas exhibiting a rich and intriguing mix of dark fruit, leather, game and spice. On the palate the wine shows a balance and elegance commendable for such a young vintage. The smooth tannins serve a nice backdrop to the dark fruit with earthy notes and a hint of chocolate. Nice medium to long finish. A pleasurable and unique wine. POW Score: 90 Walid Romaya

This wine is rich, layered and full of mouth watering flavours. I am not usually a merlot drinker but will take this one anytime!! If you want coconut, cocoa and richness you should try this one.

Well, I'm more New World than I care to admit; however this is a very solid wine for the money. It is rustic - some cherry and cedar with strong herbs...and some nice tart fruit. All in all, I appreciate the integration of old and new world flavors.

This wine on the nose, has a lot of veggie, spices, and black pepper. Slight strawberry on the palate, but nice roundness, unfortunate short finish and light tannins. Great example of value from the Chileans!

Steal for the Money

This wine had a nice medium-level tannins. The wine didn't linger as much as I'd hoped at the finish, but that may have been related to the strength of the food we paired it with. Overall, this is an outright steal for the money.  Good strawberry and cherry palate.

This wine was a little bit too dry for me but it delivers a nice mix of earth and cherry. On the palate the wine is dry and full, with more of the earth and cherry notes, along with a stronger black pepper taste. It rewards taking your time with it, enjoying its subtleties.

Barnyard Cabernet
Jun 12, 2008
1 star 1 star
This wine needed several hours to open up quite nicely to a well-balanced medium- to full-bodied mouthfeel, with OK tannins and a nice dry finish. The palate exhibits that same sense of barnyard and orange as the nose warned of, with some green pepper, black pepper, and a hint of orange sweetness. This wine is a little bit zesty, actually.

This wine is a more expensive bottle that tastes the same as the lower end wine. Some nice black pepper immediately apparent, and I'm very happy that it doesn't smell too fruity. Nice nose, big and different, old-world style. Some nice funkiness that I can't quite describe. Some nice spiciness going on.

This vintage has a very nice nose, smelling of cherry and pepper. Taste was dry but not over powering. I like the tannins and peppery taste. Great mid palette, but finish goes away fairly fast, but lingers enough to be enjoyed.

This has a  lot of beautifully sweet oak is evident and the mouthfeel is thick with several layers of tastes, many flavors that are very consistent on the palate including: black licorice, deep dark chocolate, cherry and raisins and raspberries and some strawberry. A berry tart emerges from the dark.

This Cabernet has immediate notes of leather and dark, dark cherry. A very intense and concentrated nose right from the start. A deep raisin aroma pervades the leather and reminds me of an amorone - only covered in oak and not that sweet.

Decent Table Wine
Jun 11, 2008
1 star 1 star
Good quaffer.  This wasn't anything exceptional, but again it's a decent table wine that offers enough complexity to enjoy with a simple meal.  Light cherry and tabacco with strong oak coming through on the palate.  A little too much alcohol and dirt but it's good for the price.
