  • Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon Max Reserva 2003
 

Three wines from Chile this week.

Viña Miguel Torres Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 (Chile)
$13.95 (Vintages stores, #177451)
This is a very elegant Bordeaux-style red with a lovely red berry flavour, delicately oaked with great balance. Worth tracking down. Good value. ****
Food match: lamb; veal chop

Viña Santa Alicia Carmenère Reserve 2003 (Chile)
$10.15 (General list)
Carmenère was long thought be Merlot until it was discovered to be an ancient Bordeaux variety now no longer planted in that region. Dense purple colour; red and blackcurrants, green pepper on the nose; medium-full-bodied, lovely fruit quality, firmly structured but with mellow tannins. Good value. ***½
Food match: spaghetti Bolognese; Parmesan cheese

Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon Max Reserva 2003 (Chile)
$17.95 (General list)
Think of the marriage of red Bordeaux and Napa Valley Cabernet and you have the style of this wine. It has Old World elegance and New World forward fruit. Ripe blackcurrant on the nose, well extracted fruit; medium-bodied with a firm finish. Great value. ****
Food match: roast beef; grilled quail
